Gender, Class and Occupation : Working Class Men Doing Dirty Work Hardback
This insightful new study explores an emerging and growing interest in Sociology and Organization Studies which concerns the meanings and experiences of `dirty' work.
Based on a unique study of male street cleaners, refuse collectors, graffiti removers and butchers, and drawing on Bourdieu as a theoretical frame, it presents an `embodied' understanding of `dirty' work.
Gender, Work and Occupation explores new avenues of workplace studies, highlighting how material conditions both support and constrain processes of occupation-based ideological constructions.
Using original field research, the authors put forward a different agenda in terms of how we think about dirty work, and how we can explore and understand the `lived experiences' of dirty workers.
