Lecture: Measuring Labour and Rethinking Value

From the journal feminists@law Vol. 4, No. 1 (2014).   A lecture by Lisa Adkins which considers the form of labour which has been at the very heart of feminist theorizations of immaterial labour, namely domestic labour. She explores transformations to this labour in the context of financialization, and in particular the direct links which are being forged between domestic labour and the creation of financial value. Adkins finally considers the implications of these links, or more precisely, of the financialization of domestic labour,  for the current state and future of the relations of social reproduction.
