Dr Joshua Kalemba is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Faculty of Business & Law, School of Management. Joshua was awarded a PhD in Sociology and Anthropology from the University of Newcastle (UoN), Australia in 2021. Joshua’s research focuses on how categories of difference are perceived, lived and the implications for people assigned difference in relation to work. Joshua’s research explores this in relation to processes associated with mobility, racialisation, coloniality, migration, education, belonging, and aspirations for the future. Joshua is currently researching the organisation of digital platform work from the perspective of both workers and the intermediaries they use to find work.
