Call for Abstracts
Submission for abstracts is open!
We cordially invite you to submit an individual abstract to streams listed on our website.
The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2019.
The theme for the Conference, ‘Real Work in the Virtual World’ addresses the changing contents of work and the upheavals of in current and future work, as well as the changing nature of work across occupations, industries and countries. Work is currently being reorganized globally, with consequences that reinforce some global trends and divisions, and give rise to new ones. Current features of e.g. digitalization concern not only the contents of work, and the modes and ways of doing work, but also the future of labour. What kind of society will we create through the changes? How to think about work and its value? The theme for WORK2019 calls for bold analyses of the contours and boundaries of work and working in ways which demand new understandings, both theoretically and empirically.
It is against this background that this conference seeks to explore Real Work in the Virtual World. It does so from a variety of perspectives and disciplinary approaches, including interdisciplinary approaches associated with critical labour studies, new economic sociology, feminist theory, post-colonial studies, social and cultural theory, sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, philosophy, critical health studies and gender studies.
The submission of an individual abstract is here.
