BJIR Annual Lecture 2014 with Professor Charles Heckscher (Rutgers)
Professor Charles Heckscher's Lecture title was: Transient solidarities: commitment and collective action in post-industrial societies.
He argued that solidarity has not died, despite laments about the loss of community and the widespread decline of mass actions; it can be mobilized in new ways through developing networks of plural, transient relations. The lecture took place on January 16, 2014, at 6:30 p.m., in the Hong Kong Theatre (Ground floor, Clement House, LSE, 99 Aldwych, WC2B 4JF) at the London School of Economics.
Professor Heckscher is the director of the Center for Workplace Transformation at Rutgers University. He is currently leading two research projects: one on the development of stakeholder systems, and a second project on the effects of teamwork in the acute hospital care. His research focuses on organization change and its consequences for employees and unions, and on the possibilities for more collaborative and democratic forms of work.
