Book Description:

Life's Work is a study of the shifting spaces and material practices of social reproduction in the global era. The volume blurs the heavily drawn boundaries between production and reproduction, showing through case studies of migration, education and domesticity how the practices of everyday life challenge these categorical distinctions. In particular, the authors focus on the actual spaces in which social reproduction occurs, addressing how these spaces are directly implicated in changing conceptions of subjectivity, national identity and modernity, as well as how they are inextricably linked to economic production in both theoretical and practical terms..

She is currently completing a monograph entitled, Transnationalism and the Politics of Space, for Temple University Press. Mitchell’s latest research focuses on the impact of transnational migration on conceptions of education, with a particular emphasis on how children are educated to become citizens of a particular nation-state.
