The Future of Work
How do we explain the psychic centrality of labor to human dignity and self-worth? What do we learn when we evaluate this current moment – incorporating perspectives from the global north and south – in relation to great transformations of the past?
These are the questions I have been exploring in my doctoral and now postdoctoral work looking at multiple dimensions of contemporary issues around work - from shifts in the care economy to gig work.
I recently published an Op-Ed in the Chicago Tribune critically commenting on the "Great Resignation" and how this trend relates to longer histories of work, freedom, and capitalism.
Is the Great Resignation a Golden Opportunity or Siren Song?
You can hear and see me elaborate on some of these ideas on the following programs:
