Abstract

This thesis investigates the co-development of work and place in the Pilbara mining town of Newman, Western Australia.
It considers how collective agency was eroded and employment relations transformed by the reorganisation of work and changes to how place was made and understood, with collective notions of community solidarity giving way to an individualistic mindset. Informed by the spatio-temporal development of this particular place, a qualitative case study methodology is applied to describe how work and place have interacted to remake a local labour market.
