Al James

Senior Lecturer in Economic Geography at Queen Mary, University of London

University of London (e-mail: a.james@qmul.ac.uk). His research interests are in gendered geographies of work-life and employment; high tech regional learning, innovation and entrepreneurship; and worker empowerment in India's New Service Economy. A recent project was concerned with repositioning the so-called 'business case' for work-life balance (WLB). It explored gendered patterns of work-life conflict amongst IT professionals in Dublin and Cambridge; the kinds of WLB arrangements that different worker cohorts find most useful in reconciling those conflicts; and how worker uptake of those preferred WLB arrangements enhances learning and innovation processes within and across firms. His current work is looking to extend these debates to Stay At Home Dads and the contemporary regendering of care in the UK. Al's research has been funded by the ESRC, AHRC, and Nuffield Foundation.
