Description: Advanced Readings in Work, Gender and Development: This is a research seminar on women, work, gender and development. We will read both classic and current readings on these topics from scholars from around the globe, and about men and women around the globe. Questions including gender and the economic crisis, the global assembly line, commodity chains, the informal economy, the care economy, migration, and the transformation of work within the household will be addressed. We will specifically address efforts to organize at many locations. Everyone will be expected to work on a research project, and to critique both the readings and one another's work. Prior experience in feminist studies, political economy, labor studies, or development studies is highly suggested.
