Francesca Sobande kicking off the second keynote session


On the 27th of January, Business School staff member Francesca Sobande had the opportunity to speak at a symposium about issues regarding technology, inequality and labour.

‘After Work: Life, Labour and Automation’ was organised by the Gender, Labour and Technology research group at the University of West London. It was also organised in collaboration with the Autonomy Institute, which is an independent and progressive think tank that focuses on research concerning work.

The day included several panels which addressed themes to do with the role of technology in experiences of control, resistance and labour. The format of the day provided time and space for break-out discussions that brought participants together to speak about related ideas.
