Further Details
Abstract Places & conditions of work have changed considerably in recent decades, not only in terms of technology but also with the advent of new work modes such as shift-sharing, telecommuting, & contract labor. Globalization & the new capitalism have made the work world more uncertain & employment more precarious, & this has had multiple effects on the health of workers. This situation is called the 'bio-politics of health.' Processes of health/illness related to work are examined here in terms of two concepts borrowed from Michel Foucault: vigilance & care of oneself.
