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.
You can hear and see me elaborate on some of these ideas on the following programs:
