Labour Regimes and Ecology

When: Tuesday, June 6, 2023 - Wednesday, June 7, 2023, 9:00 AM - 5:30 PM
Where: Queen Mary University of London, Mile End Road, London, E1 4NS


This workshop, organised by the Centre on Labour, Sustainability and Global Production (CLaSP),  proposes a research agenda on the labour regime-nature-ecology nexus and debates new approaches to the study of global production that centres labour in discussions of climate and biodiversity crises and socio-ecological transformations. Inspired by possibilities of bringing together labour regime analysis and environmental labour studies, this workshop includes research on the processes and mechanisms that inscribe regimes of labour control and modes of regulation in the ecological metabolisms of production and social reproduction.
