Abstract

What do we do when we work? How is work organized? What are its economic, social, political, ecological and biographical effects? We cannot answer these questions without going through the multiple categories that are used to describe work, such as "skilled" work, "domestic work", "wage work", "platform work", "essential work" etc. But where do these categories come from, what is their history, how do they differ from each other? But where do these categories come from, what is their history, how do they differ from country to country and how do they evolve? Shifting Categories of Work asks these questions, highlighting the many ways in which our societies categorise work.
