Andy presented a paper at the Work employment and society conference, Brighton, 7-8th September.

The paper was entitled ‘Reputation work/the work of reputation’ and was part of a whole day ‘strand’ to the conference on cultural work. The paper argues that this provides us with a way to discuss the diverse ‘values’ of work that have become more salient in the employment relation, in work more generally; and, in economies. In many cases (the culture sector particularly) these reputation values are above and beyond economic values. This paper discusses how reputation can be seen to take on new significance in three particular ways. As I show, there is much work in making, maintaining and interpreting a reputation.
Andy is working on a version of this paper for an academic journal
