Description: Liz Patton explores how the ongoing pandemic has reimagined work-life balance and the history of working from home throughout the 20th century. She will examine the ongoing shifts in the relationship between work and home, the forces that contributed to this discourse, and how the expansion of the labor market and the growth of U.S. consumerism have affected views about working remotely in the 21st century.
