This book introduces contemporary writing about difference through the idea of the labour of division. The contributors see divisions as artefacts that are not only produced in representations of the social but are performed as a continuous labour. Ideas of Difference will appeal to anyone working on identity, organizing, materiality, ethics or spatiality. In reversing the traditional ′division of labour′. the book puts the issue of difference in question. The issue is not so much that differences are reproduced through social constructions, but of identifying the work that social construction allows in creating, consuming and switching ′divisions′. Divisions are no longer seen as fixed, or natural, but are implicated in performing difference.
