I am starting this blog to highlight stories which catch my attention – especially around the issues of work, labor and employment. Comments welcome! And let me know if you want to contribute posts.
I am a lecturer at Lancaster University: http://lec.lancs.ac.uk/people/Siobhan_McGrath. My publications in peer-reviewed journals are listed here: http://lec.lancs.ac.uk/people/Siobhan_McGrath/publications While I might not recommend pursuing a PhD these days, I should say to those of you who have already made up your mind: I am always on the lookout for doctoral students who want to do research on labor and other interesting topics.
And by the way, somebody had already taken ‘worklabor’ at wordpress.com without the ‘u’ (although their blog is not active). That’s just for all my gringo /yankee /united-states-ian friends who are wondering if I spell things funny now that I’ve been living in England for a while. (Yes, sometimes I do.)
