Time and Money: Themes in Labour Relations
International Centre for Advanced Studies "Metamorphoses of the Political"/Georg-August-University, Göttingen
18-19 December 2017, Historische Sternwarte (Tagungszentrum), Geismar Landstr. 11
This conference is designed to consider two central themes of work relations: labour time and wage payments. The regulation of the working-week, working-day, and working hour on the one hand, and the varying modes of remuneration of work on the other, have been the source of major struggles within capitalist production relations. They have impinged upon the everyday lives of workers, and shaped both working and managerial practices at the point of production. Working hours and wage-payments can be understood both as separate forces shaping worlds of labour, and also in terms of their links with each other. This conference seeks to stimulate discussion on both of these dimensions of time and money in working lives and work structures. Labour-time and forms of remuneration vary widely, across different kinds of agricultural, industrial, and service work, as well as between formal and informal-sector labour. We intend this conference as an exploration of "time and money" across the full range of work regimes and experiences in modern and contemporary societies.
