Projects | Professor Jane Whittle

18 February @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm

The next speaker in our seminar series, Projects, will be Jane Whittle (Professor of Economic and Social History, Exeter), who will be discussing her project, ‘Forms of Labour: Gender, Freedom and Experience of Work in the Preindustrial Economy’.

The history of labour and its role in Europe’s preindustrial development has very largely been the history of adult men. Forms of Labour seeks to put other workers in the picture, particularly women and servants, not simply by ‘adding them on’ but by showing how a full understanding of women’s work and of service offers a radical critique of existing approaches to work and to the idea of free labour.

Register here. As usual, the session will be held online via Blackboard Collaborate.
