Globalization Lived Locally

This chapter begins with a discussion and vast review of the broad conceptual themes—these include an engagement with ‘globalization and labour’ as the major thematic pillar, with a special focus on globalization, gender, and work. The chapter then moves to the issues of workers’ agency in a capitalist landscape, presenting an alternative way of examining work and employment practices, addressing the issue of the spatiality of work and bringing geography into focus. Providing a fresh understanding to this interface by means of building geographical awareness and insights into the world of work, this chapter outlines the necessary theoretical tools in geography that assist in studying work, employment, and society. Whilst maintaining the discussion on labour geography as the core of this chapter, it also visits a few alternative frameworks eschewed in favour of this approach.

Keywords:   globalization, Labour geography, spatiality of work, worker agency, local labour market, space-place, global-local
