Bodies at work.


Bodies at work.

Wolkowitz, Carol.

Sage Publications


213 pages




Crossing conventional demarcations, Wolkowitz (sociology, U. of Warwick) demonstrates the contribution that concepts developed in the sociology of the body can make to the understanding of changing patterns of work and employment. She highlights the impact of work and employment on experiences of embodiment, and shows that the body/work nexus is crucial to the organization and experience of work relations and conversely that people's experience of embodiment is deeply embedded in their experiences of paid employment.
