Open Access research that is better understanding work in the global economy...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation based within Strathclyde Business School.

Better understanding the nature of work and labour within the globalised political economy is a focus of the 'Work, Labour & Globalisation Research Group'. This involves researching the effects of new forms of labour, its transnational character and the gendered aspects of contemporary migration. A Scottish perspective is provided by the Scottish Centre for Employment Research (SCER). But the research specialisms of the Department of Work, Employment & Organisation go beyond this to also include front-line service work, leadership, the implications of new technologies at work, regulation of employment relations and workplace innovation.

Abstract

In the following brief reviews I present two publications and a book that represent arguments and discussions which go beyond the main stream debate on architecture and its allied disciplines. The three pieces come from Scandinavia and in fact can be seen as catalysts for generating discussions that focus on new ways in which knowledge about the built artifacts can be further enhanced.
