TASC Lunchtime Seminar: Dr Jean Cushen, ' Organising and resisting work in the financialized workplace'.

27 April 2017 - 12:45 PM to 02:15 PM

On Thursday 27th April, Dr Jean Cushen, Maynooth University, will deliver a talk entitled: ' Organising and resisting work in the financialized workplace' .


Financialized capitalism is rendering labour markets and workplaces increasingly unstable and insecure.  Amongst employees, so called ‘employee engagement’ is at an all-time low.  Nevertheless, collective employee resistance is diminishing and individual resistance is thought to be largely non-dialogical, whereby ‘unhappy’ employees withdraw into silence or exit, seeking autonomy outside the workplace. 

This seminar explores how financialization has fundamentally altered the organisation and experience of work.  It challenges notions of ‘the end of resistance’ by offering a typology of fluctuating ‘engaged-resistant’ employee behaviours.  It will conclude by considering the potential for ‘organic solidarity’ to stimulate action on social change.   

The seminar will take place in TASC's offices in Castleriver House, 14-15 Parliament Street, Dublin 2. (Entrance on Essex Street East).

The event, which is free of charge, will run from 12.45 tea/coffee/ with the seminar starting at 13.00 and ending at 14.15 sharp.

The idea of the lunchtime seminars is that you are free to bring your own 'brown bag' lunch to eat. Complimentary tea and coffee will be available.

 Please RSVP to Sylvia Byrne on 01 6169050 or by email to sbyrne@tasc.ie if you wish to attend.
