CPOW invites you to a public lecture by Dr Lydia Hayes from Cardiff University
Who should be making sure we are cared for safely in old age? The provision of care is an urgent concern in ageing societies around the world, yet it is often taken for granted as an activity. Lydia Hayes draws on her award-winning account of the perilous state of social care provision in the UK to focus on what happens when care is marketised.
Dr Lydia Hayes is the author of Stories of Care: A Labour of Law. Gender and Class at Work (Palgrave, 2017), winner of the SLSA Hart 2018 Early Career Book Prize and was Law & Society Research Fellow in the period 2013-2016. Lydia engages with rapidly unfolding debates on the future of work, care work and inequalities of gender and class. Her concept of ‘institutionalised humiliation’ provides a theoretical frame for understanding the dynamics of legal rights and inequality in labour markets.
Drinks will follow this lecture.
