Organization and the Experience of Work

Using case studies of workers in service, public sector, knowledge and manufacturing jobs, this course will explore the dynamics between workers and the organization of work. In examining this ever-changing relationship we will be especially interested in understanding workers’ everyday experiences, including their ability to resist or shape their working conditions.
