Credits: 3

The technological and spatial foundations of work are rapidly being transformed across the globe through ongoing changes in capitalism and globalization, reconfigured global value chains, platform-mediated work, and artificial intelligence-driven algorithms for worker recruitment, evaluation, management, and surveillance. What is the nature of the interplay between these structural changes and socio-demographic changes in the workforce that heighten intersectionality and impact workers quite differently depending on gender, race/ethnicity, immigration status, and other categories and bases of identity? This course will examine these challenges for what worker rights and labor and class identities mean and how they are being reconfigured through a global and comparative international lens that interrogates both North and South.
