‘The Meanings of Work’ targets to explore certain dimensions of the changes taking place in the labour-world along with an account on the consequences, theoretical and empirical, entailed by these transformations.
Billions of men and women depend exclusively on their labour to survive and encounter increasingly unstable, precarious or casual workers and the unemployed.
‘The Meanings of Work’ starts with a wider conception of work and seeks to understand this new condition of labour today.
