Abstract:

This article proposes that ‘mobile work’ be analysed on the basis of differences in the relationship of mobility to the labour process. Although 'working while mobile' is a largely white-collar (and well researched) phenomena, 'mobility as work' and 'mobility for work', involve a more diverse range of work, and are often omitted from sociological analysis of mobile work. The variety of work involving mobility is explored and is followed by an empirical investigation of mobile hairstyling, a form of 'mobility for work' that has increased over the last quarter century. Data is drawn from the British Labour Force Survey and interviews with mobile stylists. The relationship between mobility and the construction of spatial, social and temporal work-life boundaries is excavated and it is contended that, in light of the full range of mobile work, it is difficult to argue that ‘place’ is of diminishing importance.
