An interesting mini-conf. on work and labor markets. Please contact Sean O Riain (Sean.ORiain@nuim.ie) if you have questions.
We would welcome abstracts for the mini-conference on "The Political
Economy of Work and Labor Markets: Workplace Regimes in Comparative
Perspective" at the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics
(SASE) in Chicago.
This mini-conference is designed to bridge the gap between micro
analyses of the workplace and macro political economy by fostering
dialogue across disciplinary and sub-disciplinary boundaries. We invite
papers that address different aspects of workplace organization (e.g.
working time, security, pay, career ladders, the labor process,
collective action, etc), their connections with macro-political
institutions and actors, and adopt a comparative perspective.
Submissions may use a range of methodological approaches (including case
studies, quantitative methods, and qualitative comparative analysis),
operate at different levels (national, regional, sectoral, corporate,
etc.), and explore a wide variety of relevant topics.
Further details are available at:
Paper abstracts must be submitted by January 20, 2014. Candidates will
be notified by February 17, 2014. Please note that Mini-Conferences
require an extended (~1,000 word) abstract, and ask that you submit a
full paper by March 31, 2014.
Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions you might have.
