The Centre studies work in all its forms and contexts.
The focus on work is core to the Centre’s research agenda, covering material and immaterial labour, as well as the political economy of work in industrial and post-industrial contexts. It involves research on work activity and work experience, gender, management and managerialism, work and employment, precarious work and standardised work, immaterial and aesthetic work, as well as the skills associated with work, labour markets and the changing relations between paid and unpaid work and households. It also focuses on gender and equality at work, ‘decent work’ and the character of jobs in a changing world.
