Karel Musilek: “Work as a ‘way of living’: subjectivity and work in co-livings”

In Students by jvnf65


My doctoral research focuses on new discourses of work, entrepreneurship, forms of work related subjectivity, and new organisational forms of work-life integration. I am especially interested in how we form personal attachments to economy in general and work in particular. I am keen on exploring how are these issues developed in social theory and qualitative research.
I am a PhD student in the School of Applied Social Sciences at Durham University. I have completed Certificate in Social Research Methods at Durham University, MSc in Political Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and BA in Political Science and International Relations at Masaryk University. My PhD is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
