Training Workshop: Political Economies of Work (20 February 2019)
This workshop is hosted by The Bristol Centre for Economics and Finance (University of the West of England) and will take place at The Bristol Business School, UWE Frenchay Campus on the 20th of February 2019, 10:00-17:00.
The Workshop will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, junior academics and activists who have a particular interest in acquainting themselves with the relevance of Marxian political economy to the contemporary world. In this workshop, scholars will be introducing different understandings of work in the contemporary context that draw upon, but not limited to, different interpretations of Marx. Sessions interrogate issues of the global division of labour, gendered labour and questions about automation and the rise in digital platforms that are changing the conditions and experiences of work.
Speakers: Lucia Pradella (Kings College London), Sara Stevano (University of the West of England), Harry Pitts (University of Bristol)
This workshop is free to attend but pre-registration is required.
Lunch will be provided courtesy of the Bristol Centre for Economics and Finance
