Twenty-five years after the publication of Paul Willis' seminal text Learning to Labor, Nadine Dolby and Greg Dimitriadis have gathered together an internationally renowned group of scholars to reflect on the meaning and influence of what many consider to be the most influential book in critical education and cultural studies of our time. Learning to Labor in New Times will refocus attention on the themes that have been central to Willis' work: the relationship between schooling and work; the lives of working class youth; the role of the school as a productive site of struggle; the significance of common culture in the lives of young people; and the continuing importance of ethnography as a research methodology.
