PUBLIC LECTURE: Contemporary Issues in Employment Relations 2013 Annual Lecture: Social Movements in the Era of Neoliberalism
|Contemporary Issues in Employment Relations 2013 Annual Lecture: Social Movements in the Era of Neoliberalism
Professor Michael Burawoy who is the 2013 UWA Business School Visiting Professor will present a public lecture as part of the Contemporary Issues in Employment Relations Series.
Abstract: The world is currently living through multiple crises including the ongoing global financial crisis, the Arab Spring, pervasive work insecurity and the present and looming ecological disasters. In this lecture,
Professor Burawoy will consider new social movements that have emerged in response to these, and their source in the different manifestations of neoliberalism and its impacts on labour, finance, nature and knowledge. How should we characterise these movements, what can we attribute them to, and what can we glean from them in terms of future forms of engagement both broadly, and in relation to work and labour?
Professor Burawoy is a longtime member of the sociology department at the University of California at
Berkeley and the current President of the International Sociological Association. Professor Burawoy was the former president of the American Sociological Association.
