This subject explores contemporary issues and emerging trends that have an impact on the future of work, organisations and society. It supports students to develop their sociological imagination and critically analyse how their personal experiences reveal insights about organisational practice. The subject draws on historical and futurist scholarship to examine the genealogy of emerging work trends, while considering the institutional and grassroots movements that have attempted to shape the future of work. Students undertake a research project that connects the analysis of work and organisations with society, culture and the self through which they have the opportunity to reflect on what they would like to change in the future of work.
