Book release about Home-Based Work 1800-2021

Published: 2021-11-24

Our researcher Malin Nilsson has written a very interesting book on a very up to date topic “Home-Based Work and Home-Based Workers 1800-2021”

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the home as a workplace became a widely discussed topic. However, for almost 300 million workers around the world, paid work from home was not news. Home-Based Work and Home-Based Workers (1800-2021) includes contributions from scholars, activists and artists addressing the past and present conditions of home-based work. They discuss the institutional and legal histories of regulations for these workers, their modes of organization and resistance, as well as providing new insights on contemporary home-based work in both traditional and developing sectors.
