This session builds on a strong set of sessions at the Feminist Geography conference hosted by the Université de Montréal, 2018. At that meeting, papers addressed economic justice, precarious work, and social reproduction. Kinship and debt in the organization of work and workers’ lives emerged as a central theme in these sessions, which included case studies on the London rental housing market; agrarian labour in Bengal and Tamil Nadu; ‘death care’ as work; automated elder care work in Japan; craft bloggers’ labour; and women bus conductors’ mobile workplaces in Delhi. The purpose of sessions at the AAG2019 is to further facilitate interventions from feminist economic geography to query the ‘future of work’.
