The podcast series will examine how new technology has disrupted the world of work and what this means for the future of work. We emphasise that these shifts do not result from the COVID-19 pandemic and the various legislation encouraging workers to work remotely. Instead, COVID-19 has brought these shifts to light.

This series is hosted by Fikile Masikane and includes guests such as Prof Edward Webster, Jane Barrett, Dr Jean-Patrick Leger, Prof Barry Dwolatzky.

Home[Work] I

This episode looks at historical and contemporary issues arising from a work force that is increasingly working remotely either due to shifts in technology or the COVID-19 imposed lockdowns. We begin by examiing the history of working from home, what we call “home-based work”, the shift to factory-based work and the full circle return to home-based work.
