Work in Progress with Christopher Michaelson, discusses every working person’s work in progress, namely, our quest to be fully human in a working world that all too often makes us feel like machines, in which we often don’t even have time to think, and that, in the words of Studs Terkel, too often feels like “a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”
Our second podcast episode airs with host Michaelson and two guests: The documentary reviewer, University of New Hampshire Associate Professor of Marketing, Shuili Du and, University of St. Thomas Associate Professor of Marketing & Academic Director of Business in a Digital World.
Michaelson, Du and Abendroth discuss The Netflix documentary, The Social Dilemma, highlighting the good, the bad, and the ugly of social networking in today's world and in the future.
This documentary review has also been published in The Journal of Business Ethics (JBE) to answer two questions: "Is this documentary worth seeing?" and "What ideas or questions will this documentary illuminate for anyone with interest in business ethics?"
To advance dialogue between scholars and the public about business ethics and society, this review will be free to access at JBE for a period of 8 weeks, ending July 31, 2021.
