Paul Rekret publishes new article on contemporary representations of labour and leisure


Dr Paul Rekret has published a new article entitled “Working Holiday: On Labour and Leisure in Trap” in the latest issue of Cesura//Acceso: A Journal of Music Politics and Poetics. In the article, Rekret argues that the current popularity of popular music originating in the US South and Atlanta, in particular, should be understood within the context of broader processes of de-industrialisation in the northeastern United States along with the growing suburbanization of poverty in the South.

The article builds on a larger research project examining changing experiences of labour and leisure in post-Fordism.
