LABRST 793 / Advanced Labour Studies Theory

3 unit(s)

Prerequisite(s): Must be enrolled in Ph.D. in Labour Studies or in M.A. with permision from the instructor.

In this seminar, students will deepen their knowledge of select thinkers in classical and contemporary labour studies theory. Class time will be divided between the work of key theorists in the areas of labour process theory, the sociology of work and labour markets and that of theorists who challenge or extend these conceptualizations. The focus on contemporary labour studies theory will examine how labour studies theory is evolving in new directions. In particular, we will focus on how labour studies theory has been influenced by different social movements and sub-disciplines so as to integrate theoretical insights from feminist, anti-racist, geographical, anti-colonial and disability rights perspectives.
