This chapter examines the impact of new computer-mediated technologies on clerical and intellectual labor. New computer-based mediated technologies have transformed the academic as well as the commercial office. A significant amount of clerical work has been transferred to the professor. Most professors are now their own typists, secretaries, and receptionists. Thus, the effect of technological work on the professoriat has been to increase workload. The professoriat is increasingly subject to productivity norms comparable to those that are part of the taken-for-granted conditions of manual and clerical labor.

Keywords:   computer-mediated technologies, clerical labor, academic, professoriat, productivity norms
