Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Work comes in many different forms (waged or unwaged, productive or
reproductive, wage labor, care work or subsistence production etc.) and
the way people work has changed tremendously throughout history and
differs also along different cultural contexts. In modern market
economies featuring labor markets, wage labor becomes a pivotal factor
to determine one’s life chances and access to societal privileges.

This course introduces into the sociology of work, i.e. the academic
study of work relations. Students will learn pivotal concepts and
theories, historical trajectories, classical texts as well as new
debates about automation, digitalization and the future of work.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students are asked to actively participate in discussions, present one of the texts and write a brief assignment after the end of the class.
