Beyond the Wage: panel discussion

When: getMessage().'-->'; ?> Wednesday, 04 August 2021 - Wednesday, 04 August 2021
Where: Online Event
Start time:16:00

SCIS and SWOP invite you to an online panel discussion to celebrate the launch of a new book: Beyond the Wage: Ordinary Work in Diverse Economies.

This new edited collection revitalises debates on the future of work by challenging the idea of wage employment as the global norm. Taking theoretical inspiration from the global South, the authors compare lived experiences of ‘ordinary work’ across taken-for-granted conceptual and geographical boundaries; from Cambodian brick kilns to Catalonian cooperatives. Their contributions open up new possibilities for how work, identity and security might be woven together differently.

The aim of this panel discussion is to showcase the arguments of the book to a South African and international audience and profile the two Southern African empirical chapters to generate debate and discussion.

William Monteith (editor), Liz Fouksman (author) and Hannah Dawson (author) will be discussion with Thabang Sefalafala, Franco Barchiesi and Edward Webster. Chaired by Ruth Castel-Branco.

Please register in advance for this Zoom event.
