Abstract or Description

Catalyzed by conversations with night-shift workers in London and Milton Keynes, this collection brings together neuroscientists, anthropologists, authors, cab-drivers, and artists to reflect on the conditions of nocturnal labour. Through each contribution, the night shift is interpreted as a displaced, ambivalent space — of disciplined protocol, of calm meditation, of queer autonomy, of hedonistic resistance, or of exhaustion beyond words.

Night Shifter features contributions from Phanuel Antwi, Ayesha Hameed, Chris James-Harvey, William Kherbek, Sophie Lapalu, Barney Lewer, Jeff Perkins, Jason Pine, Kate Porcheret, Georgina Voss, and Vlad Vyazovskiy.
