Studenteropgave: Speciale


This master thesis examines and discusses alternative perspectives on the concepts of work and labour in the search for new ways of organising a better and sustainable future. Initially, the study sees utopian thinking as a necessity, if you aim to challenge and transcend current and normalised ways of thinking about society and work. Subsequently, it is the belief that a transformation of the concept of work and labour should start locally, and should be action-orientated and democratically developed and implemented. The study draws on critical theoretical perspectives from the sociology of work in an effort to establish a critical picture of the current understanding of work and labour, as the basis for presenting different and sustainable ideas for a reorganisation of the concepts. To understand how these ideas exist in everyday life of working people - and to underpin the action-orientated ambition – everyday life of professionals working within the pedagogical field is used as a case. Based on everyday experiences and knowledge, ways and needs for reorganising the future pedagogical work in a new and sustainable direction are explored. On the basis of empirical and theoretical input we conclude four directions for pursuing a sustainable, broader and better concept of work and labour.
