In May of this year I was working on a research project at Berkeley. There I met Arlie Hochschild, whose formal academic career as a professor of sociology at Berkely University for the past 35 years was about to end. I had the opportunity to visit one of her classes and discuss research methodology and ways of writing up results. We also spoke about the differences between American and Czech gender regimes. At that time I got the idea of asking Arlie if she would do an interview for this journal, and she agreed. Arlie’s knowledge and experience enable her to clearly and concisely analyze, formulate and produce unique ideas about our daily lives. She has introduced into sociology concepts such as the second shift, the stalled revolution, management of emotions, emotional work, the time bind, and many more. Arlie has been a major contributor to the field of sociology and we are grateful for the time she spared for this interview.
Arlie Hochschild is the author of The Unexpected Community (1973), The Managed Heart (1983), The Second Shift (1989), The Time Bind (1997), Global Woman: Nannies, Maids and Sex Workers in the New Economy (co-edited with Barbara Ehrenreich, 2002) and The Commercial Spirit of Intimate Life and Other Essays (2003). Her books have been translated in many languages, but none are yet available in Czech.
