Daily Meaning and Daily Bread
LAS 379 - Daily Meaning and Daily Bread3 hours What is work and how does work define our lives and ourselves? What is leisure and how does it affect the meaning of our working lives? How has technology changed work – its structure and meaning, the nature of specific jobs or trades, the way in which work is produced or performed? How has technology impacted our leisure – does it add to or detract from the way we spend our free time? In this class we will examine questions of this kind through close examination of scholarly articles, short stories, oral histories, films, and plays, as well as through class discussion, writing exercises, and group projects.
