About this book

This volume focuses on new ways of working, and explores implications of these new practices with a particular emphasis on the place occupied by technology, materiality and bodies within contemporary working configuration. It draws together an international range of scholars to examine diverse subjects such as: the gig economy, social media as a work space, the role of materiality in the living labs, managerial techniques and organizational legitimacy. Drawing on global perspectives, from France to Nigeria, this book presents a fascinating examination of the many new ways people are working, and relating to their work.
