Description

This subject provides an internship-like experience for students. Students explore contemporary debates concerning the future of work and employment. Critical insights are developed into changes now taking place in the labour market and students have opportunities to reflect on their own working futures in light of these changes. The subject covers new forms of work, including debates around digital labour, creative labour and affective labour; entrepreneurship and the demand to create your own work; free labour and the changing relations between work and remuneration; flexible work and the erosion of boundaries between work and leisure. Opportunities are provided for students to apply knowledge and insights gained through observational workplace experiences, as well assessing their own transferable workplace skills via skills audits.
