Migration, Domestic Work and Affect : A Decolonial Approach on Value and the Feminization of Labor Hardback
Part of the Routledge Research in Gender and Society series
Domestic and care work in private households is now the largest employment sector for migrant women.
This book sheds light on these households through its focus on the interpersonal relationships between Latin American "undocumented migrant" domestic workers and employers in Austria, Germany, Spain and the UK.
The personal experiences of these women form the basis for Gutierrez-Rodriguez's decolonial analysis of the feminization of labor in private households and cultural analysis of domestic work as affective labor.
This book will be a necessary voice in the debates on citizenship, cosmopolitanism, and migrant workers' rights.
