Interdisciplinary Labour Studies Seminar

A geographer and a historian present their research on industrial work in Turkey in a globalised context.

This is part of a seminar series that draws scholars from history, sociology, political economy, women's studies, industrial relations, and other fields in assessing the place of labour and working people in society.

It features cutting-edge research done within the University, with scholars from the different Schools, and occasionally from outside the University.

The format consists of a presentation of a research in progress and a discussion.

The seminar aims to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration around the topic of labour, social activism, and working people in UK and internationally.
