Whittard, Damian; Drew, Hilary; Ritchie, Felix – Journal of Education and Work, 2022
The student workforce plays a substantial part in several low-paying industries such as retail and hospitality, and this has grown over time. However, there has been little recent research.

Montemaggi, Francesca E. S. – Journal of Beliefs & Values, 2018
This article opens a window on the world of chaplains supporting seafarers, which has largely been neglected by the literature. Shipping happens in ports, which are often far away from urban centres. It is thus removed from everyday experience making seafarers an invisible population and, with them, the chaplains who assist them. The article…
