Description of Event
Jennifer Nedelsky joins us online to discuss her new book, Part Time for All. The book offers solutions to four pressing problems: inequality for care-givers; family stress from demands of work and care; chronic time scarcity; and, the care/policy divide. A radical restructuring of both work and care can redress all these problems through establishing new norms: no one does paid work for more than 30 hours a week, and everyone contributes roughly 22 hours of unpaid care to family, friends, or their chosen community of care.
Free access to Professor Nedelsky's book can be found through the UBC library or Oxford Academic online.
Jennifer Nedelsky received her Ph.D. from the interdisciplinary Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.
