    Project Details

    Description

    The PhD project investigates the impact of various information technologies for scheduling and classifying needs in mobile home-care work. In particular, the project examines (a) the dichotomies and the intermeshing of process time and clock time in care work, (b) how a rigid temporal specification of work tasks may affect the accomplishment of care, and (c) how a plethora of work rhythms and entrainment processes are formed and reinforced to enable effective collaboration.
