The Social and Spatial Ecology of Work: The Case of a Survey Research Organization (Plenum Studies in Work and Industry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book studies both the social organizational specifics and the interior spatial setting of a survey research organization through a combination of social science and architectural research. Using the ethnographic method, the author analyzes how social organizational dimensions are related to the spatial ecology of the workplace and highlights how workers use and alter aspects of their physical surroundings to enrich and give meaning to their work lives.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on her background in both architecture and social science, Gorawara-Bhat (U. of Chicago) applies ethnographic methods to a midwestern survey company to investigate how social-organizational dimensions become concretized into and through the spatial ecology of the work setting. She also illustrates how workers, in the course of negotiating their routine work, use aspects of their spatial surround as mechanisms to enrich and give meaning to their work lives, thus altering the social ecology of work.
