Andrea Komlosy in conversation with Autonomy think tank director Will Stronge about the history of work

Say the word “work,” and most people think of some form of gainful employment. Yet this limited definition has never corresponded to the historical experience of most people—whether in colonies, developing countries, or the industrialized world.

That gap between common assumptions and reality grows even more pronounced in the case of women and other groups excluded from the labour market.

Tracing the complexity and contradictory nature of work throughout history, author Andrea Komlosy discusses her new book Work: The Last 1,000 Years with Will Stronge, director of the think tank Autonomy.
