  • This course will focus on the interplay of work and family at multiple levels of analysis: intrapersonal, interpersonal, organizational and societal. Students will be asked to read a number of books and articles ¿ including scholarly works and contemporary news pieces ¿ and critically analyze the ways in which work and family intersect, conflict and enhance one another in the lives of employees and the organizations in which they work. The course will be centered on academic research in human resources and organizations, differential focuses in areas such as psychology and sociology, and analyses of popular discussions of sometimes controversial topics. Sample topics include: the ever changing definitions of ¿work¿ and ¿family¿; organizational policies on work-family (flexible work options and parental leave); psychological and emotional responses to work-family; conflict and facilitation from the intersection of work-family; and demographics differences and work-family issues. Written requirements will include: editorial/blog posts, business memos, and a research report. This course fulfills the ILR Advanced Writing requirement. Enrollment is restricted to ILR Sophomores and others with permission of the instructor.
