Tracking Global Labor: Perspectives from Anthropology and Labor Relations
September 28, Ithaca Campus
Presented by: Kathryn March, Department of Anthropology and Rosemary Batt, ILR
4:30-6:00pm; ILR Doherty Lounge (280 Ives Hall)
Kathryn March has just returned from Nepal where her research is tracing the lives of rural migrant day laborers who now work in Southeast Asia, the Persian Gulf, and beyond.
Rose Batt has been studying the global outsourcing of service work from the U.S. to India and back.
What do these two studies have in common? And what challenges does globalization pose for researchers who are trying to examine its processes and develop policy alternatives to address its consequences?
Come to the first GGC workshop on “Dilemmas for Research in a Global Era” -- a series of discussions about how global restructuring is affecting the boundaries of work, communities, and disciplines -- creating new challenges for how we conduct our research.
