About the Event

This event is open to all.  We especially welcome postgraduate and early career researchers.

Human labour, both waged and non-waged, is central to the reproduction of society as a whole. 

This one-day multi-disciplinary symposium at the University of Cambridge will showcase new scholarship exploring gendered perspectives on work and social reproduction.  The symposium brings together emerging research under the broad theme of gender and working lives.

Keynote Lecture

  • Professor Linda McDowell - Gender divisions of labour and periods of crisis: reflections on employment change in the UK

The Symposium will showcase work by postgraduate and early career scholars exploring gender and work in relation to the following themes and beyond:

  • Production/reproduction
  • Temporalities, work rhythms and generations.
  • Diverse/marginal economies.
  • Precarity and informality
  • Global care chains and migration
  • Embodiment and materialities
