Join Professor Rachael Woldoff and Professor Robert Litchfield discuss the phenomenon of Digital Nomads. Digital nomads are people who design their work lives to be mobile, traveling and living as they please without maintaining a long-term home. Sociology professor Rachael Woldoff (West Virginia University) and management professor Robert Litchfield (Washington & Jefferson College), Mt. Lebanon residents and authors of the new book “Digital Nomads: In Search of Freedom, Community, and Meaningful Work in the New Economy” (Oxford U. Press, 2021), take you inside the world of digital nomads to learn about the people who choose this lifestyle and why their experience is relevant to so many people now.
