Opening Remarks



This event officially inaugurated the 2021 Pop-Up Institute: “Beyond the Future of Work: New Paradigms for Addressing Global Inequality.” After opening remarks on the urgent need to rethink work and livelihood, this roundtable reconvened speakers from our Fall 2020 Colloquium “Inequality, Labor, and Human Rights: The Future of Work in the Age of Pandemic” for an interdisciplinary conversation about the future of work and livelihoods, addressing themes from across each of the five research clusters: AI and Technology, Artistic Labor and the Humanities, Care Work, Essential Work, and Work across the Global South.
