CALL FOR PROPOSALS

un Projects is now calling for proposals for un Magazine 16.1, edited by D Harding and Hilary Thurlow, to be published in June 2022.

The history of the wage relation and the structure of the working day have changed the way we eat, store fat, and go hungry. This history includes the introduction of sugar, coffee, tobacco, and other commodities that are inextricable from the working day and labouring body …
