Discussion with Andrea Komlosy

Discussion with Andrea Komlosy, professor and coordinator of the Global History and Studies program in the Department Economics and Social History at Vienna University, Austria.

Komlosy discusses hidden forms of unpaid labour and hyper-exploitation that contribute significantly to the functioning of the capitalist system, a global and feminist approach.

From the economic structures and ideological mystifications surrounding work in the Middle Ages, all the way to European colonialism and the industrial revolution, Komlosy’s narrative adopts a distinctly global and feminist approach, revealing the hidden forms of unpaid and hyper-exploited labour which often go ignored, yet are key to the functioning of the capitalist world-system.
