The pandemic transformed our understanding of labor. Hospital workers saw dire shortages of staff and supplies, offices were emptied for “remote work,” and we watched as the already woeful conditions of our essential workers and industries worsened further. Aaron Benanav and Grace Blakeley discuss the future of work in the light of the shifts the pandemic produced, the inequalities it exacerbated, and the precarities it laid bare. Moderated by Nicole Aschoff (Verso).
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE ON ZOOM. FREE WITH RSVP.
Part of COVID 19 & ITS AFTERLIVES, a series sponsored by NYU’s Office of Global Inclusion, NYU’s Center for the Humanities, NYU Skirball, NYU’s Special Collections, Verso Books, n+1, and Minetta Creek Collective. Organized by David Sugarman.
