The focus of feminist debates on social reproduction has been both conceptual (what delimits domestic/work? In what ways is it gendered? What does this gendered understanding tell us about the way in which capitalism/society reproduces itself? What are the political and discursive struggles around and against these delimitations of the domestic/work…) as well as methodological (how/can domestic work be measured? What has been less focused on is the obverse side – what happens when the domestic/work is not taken into account? Not simply in terms of policy outcomes or discursive political norms about who ‘works’ and who doesn’t but in terms of the bodies, spaces, communities and relationships that form the network of our everyday lives. It is this aspect that I address through examining two intersecting conceptual axes – depletion and/in everyday political economy.
