Summary This text explores how work, television, and waged labour come to have meaning in our everyday lives by describing the forgotten history of twentieth century workplace television. Analyzing how businesses used television to shape employees' relationships to their labour in order to secure industrial efficiency and support corporate expansion, 'Television at Work' challenges long-held understandings of the 'domestic' medium. It also offers a critical prehistory of the use of digital technologies to extend the workday and advance understandings of labour that revolve around dehumanized technological systems and information flows.
Audience Specialized.
