Divergent Temporalities: Polarisation or Marginalisation

With Professor Kevin Doogan
Recorded:
10 Mar 2016
Speakers:
With Professor Kevin Doogan

Professor Kevin Doogan argues that technological change is not an autonomous process, which drives everything in its wake regardless of institutional, social or other aspects of life. The influence of technology on work and employment can not be understood as deterministic or mechanical and there are institutional limits to technological innovations. He goes on to argue that there are divergent trends on the one hand towards short-term casual on call work on the other increasing job stability.

This talk was recorded at the Oxford University Digital Transformations of Work Conference as part of Green Templeton College’s Future of Work Programme. This event brought together leading experts on work, employment and labour markets to discuss how the internet and digital platforms are transforming the world of work. It took place at Green Templeton College, University of Oxford, on 10 March 2016.
