Kathi Weeks: The Problem With Work

program date: 
Tue, 12/04/2012

 Joe Clement talks with Kathi Weeks about her book "The Problem with Work: feminism, marxism, antiwork politics and postwork imaginaries". They discuss the work ethic and why it promises more than it delivers. They also consider the tradition of antiwork politics and how feminists helped widen the scope of what we consider work and who we consider part of the working-class and involved in class-struggle.

 
Joe Clement quotes Peter Frase's blog-post Do They Owe Us A Living?
 
Kathi Weeks is a professor of Women's Studies at Duke University and the graduate program director as well. She's the author of essays that anticipate this book as well as The Jameson Reader.
