Evatt Sunset Seminar: The work/life collision
Care is a casualty of the contemporary collision between work and life. The casualty list is a long one: care of ourselves, each other, our households, families and communities, our quality of life, care in childhood, old age, sickness and death, and our efforts to live well and to reproduce. The effects go beyond how we feel: they affect vital economic and demographic trends. Barbara Pocock discusses the issues with Tanya Plibersek, and Jeannette McHugh is in the chair. It's happening on Monday evening in Sydney 5.30pm for 6pm (1 September).

Transforming labour: work, struggle and change
Everyone's on their way to Brisbane on 3-5 October for the 8th national labour history conference. The conference is going to examine transformations in both work and wider social relationships that are affecting people at all levels throughout the globe: the shift from blue-collar to intellectual labour; the relocation of the physical place and context within which work occurs (including tele-working from home); the creation of new forms of employment relationships ... and the problems all this poses for how labour organises.
