This project brings together international scholars in Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Argentina, Turkey, South Africa, and Bangladesh to investigate, in a collaborative and interdisciplinary way, the past and present of the workplace. We are especially concerned to move across the divides between the global North and South, between different disciplines, and between different methods and orientations. The project draws on a range methodologies and on tools in the digital humanities and social sciences to archive, curate, and disseminate our results and findings to audiences of students, scholars, activists, and the general public. We welcome communication, especially offers to share research, collaborate, and exchange ideas.
