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.

At the end of September 2017, through an electronic circular from the Association of Architectural Educators, I came to know a few months late that Professor Thomas A. Dutton has passed away in June 2017. Died at an age of 65 years, with his departure as an influential educator, architect, and community enabler, a great void and a vacuum in architectural education as an academic discipline is created. A Cincinnati Professor of Community Engagement at Miami University, Oxford, Ohio, Tom left a legacy of body of writings, approaches to learning, fervent commitment, and, most important, countless professionals who, under his teachings, have acquired critical abilities to become agents of transformations of the communities they serve towards spatial justice and social impartiality. It is with great sadness that I write this Obituary for Tom Dutton. I reflect on my interaction with him in two occasions and present analytical contemplation on the design studio ideals he established.
