My undergraduate class mostly self-hosted a really terrific (in my opinion, I don’t know if they thought so) discussion of Michael Burawoy’s Manufacturing Consent and Karen Hossfeld’s “‘Their Logic Against Them’: Contradictions in sex, race and class on the Silicon Valley shop floor.” (a chapter in Ward’s 1990 Women Workers and Global Restructuring). They mobilized Burawoy’s discussion of the relative autonomy of the labor process, strategized about what constitutes resistance and change in the workplace, confronted big and small questions with attention to readings and real-life consideration. Overall, very satisfying. Thank you, CU/Barnard community.
Ok, now back to giving Fabian the response he deserves on this.
