GLOBAL STUDIES 5622

This course examines the connections between work, types of workers, workers' movements, labor ideologies, and labor politics from a global historical perspective. It analyzes working-class formation, state-labor relations, patterns of racialized and gendered work, and transnational and transcontinental labor activism in the context of global capitalism. Special attention will be given to experiments in workers' control, workers' responses to precarity, and the emergence of platform and digital workers as part of the global working class.
