Abstract

Precarious, quantified workers are always-on, overworked and anxious. In this book, Moore draws on feminist new materialism and Marxist new materialism to develop a framework for the investigation of tracking technologies in the precarious workplace. Recognising the multiple disciplines in which work on this topic has been developing, the work seeks to bring together discussions about quantification and precarity from across the social science disciplines in partnership with the author’s own empirical research.
