  • PhD study on unpaid household and carework

    Created: 28/01/2023
    News/Events Category: General News

    A PhD student at Glasgow Caledonian University is interested in recruiting unpaid carers, particularly those with adult or elder care responsibilities, for a study into the gendered impact of COVID-19 on the household divisions of unpaid care work.

    The research seeks to understand how potential pandemic-induced shifts have influenced unpaid care roles and domestic labour tasks within heterosexual households and the longer-term impacts this may have on the gendered organisation of work and family life.  

    Existing research has demonstrated that care work – both paid and unpaid – has increased significantly for both sexes during the pandemic.
