This course is organized around the theme of work. In the first part of the course we consider a variety of theoretical orientations towards work, from early liberal feminist prescriptions of waged work for women to Marxist feminist and postwork critiques of work under capitalism. In the second part of the course we turn our attention to recent developments in the organization of work, focusing on particular forms and modes of feminized labor including waged domestic work, aspirational labor, sex work, emotional labor, gestational labor, care work, and precarious work.
