I will discuss various shifts and transformations concerning the relationship between everyday life and politics of the social. In the industrial capitalism everyday life was supposed to be a sphere being opposed to work and free time; it was the â€˜small lifeâ€™ conducted by women as opposed to the important life in the economy and politics conducted by men. The very set of the opposition was a logic of power; as many feminist and other scholars have shown. Today; this territorial model of life has begun to blur. In the new 7/24 society; homes which used to be the site of the everyday life have turned into working places. At the same time; the logic of everyday life is leaking out from its conventional sphere. The figure of the housewife; once the nexus of everyday life; has become the paradigm and ideal worker of the new labour market: she is capable of doing many things at the same time; he is flexible and social; she takes care of complex logistic chains; and he doesnâ€™t lose his temper even if the customers present impossible demands or cry from the evening to the morning. These changes go along with the changes in the forms of governance: the old ways of the politics of the social based on the clear division between the everyday life and work (which is still echoing the â€˜work-family balanceâ€™ discourse) do not obviously fit any longer. I will suggest a way to look at the changes and discontinuities by drawing a map; which takes â€˜smallâ€™ agency as its starting point. The concept of small agency refers to the approach that asks: How are the (global) changes in the labour market and in the politics of the social made livable? I will use examples from my previous study on The Everyday Life of Adults and from my current study on Precarisation in North-Karelia.
