The Story of Work: a new history of humankind
Join us for this talk by Jan Lucassen who will discuss his new book, The Story of Work.

We work because we have to, but also because we like it: from hunting-gathering more than 700,000 years ago to the present era of zoom meetings, humans have always worked to make the world around them suit their needs.

Jan Lucassen provides an inclusive history of humanity’s busy labour throughout the ages. Spanning China, India, Africa, the Americas, and Europe, Lucassen looks at the ways in which humanity organises work: in the household, the tribe, the city, and the state. He examines how labor is split between men, women, and children; the watershed moment of the invention of money; the collective action of workers; and at the impact of migration, slavery, and the idea of leisure.

Hosted by the Department of Economic History.

Attendance at an event will be shared with other parts of the School.
