In regard to gender these transformations pose the risk of new forms of exclusion or the opportunity for new forms of inclusion. This research project develops a novel understanding of how digitalisation shapes and is shaped by gender at work.
The first three parts of the project are supported by a Leverhulme Trust Major Research Fellowship entitled Shaping the Future of Work – Digitalisation and Gender (MRF-2019-069).
The fourth part, Algorithms and Gender: Helping Artificial Intelligence Learn is funded by the British Academy (SRG20\200195).
Part of our research project seeks to understand how mainstream books on the future of work talk about gender. Our online questionnaire is investigating which books on the broad topic of the future of work are regarded as insightful. The books should be published in or after 2016 and should centre on the future of work and digitalisation (broadly defined to include machine learning, AI, automation, robotics etc.). The books do not have to focus on or even discuss gender prominently. The books should represent general books on the future of work and digitalisation. If you have particular popular books on the future of work to recommend, feel free to suggest them.
