How will work change in the future? Is the technology takeover inevitable? What will the social cost be?

The new Futures of Work blog offers radical and critical thinking on ongoing and emerging issues associated with work and employment.

Produced by Bristol University Press in collaboration with a multidisciplinary editorial team at the University of Bristol, the blog hosts long-form opinion pieces, responses and thought-provoking podcasts.

The editorial team is led by Harry Pitts, Katie Bales and Huw Thomas (below, left to right). If you are interested in finding out more and contributing to the blog please contact paul.stevens@bristol.ac.uk. You can also sign up to the newsletter to get all the latest updates.
