WORK, EMPLOYMENT AND SOCIETY
Not currently offered
Credit points: 15
This subject explores how our experience of work has changed since the beginning of western industrialisation. We consider both paid and unpaid work in the context of broad social, cultural, economic and technological changes, and the way in which these changes have shaped the personal meanings we attach to work. Topics include the growth of the professions, work-life balance, emotional and domestic labour, narratives of work and identity, and the impacts of globalisation on work.
