Night-time working is an area in which transformational changes are occurring, many identified by geographers, but in which the role of night itself – the ‘nocturnality’ of night work – has often been overlooked. This article looks at how geographical research into work and interdisciplinary research from night studies could inform one another, arguing that a focus on the nocturnality of night work can generate wider insights into existing social and economic geographical research into labour. Importantly, the challenges brought by the nocturnality of night work make its study valuable for understanding social justice under contemporary capitalism.
