“New Economic Realities: Risk, Inequality and Workplace”
Submission Deadline: February 17, 2012
The LERA Program Committee welcomes proposals for stimulating, creative, and controversial panels related to this theme as well as other proposals that deal with labor, labor markets, labor and employment relations, inequality, economic justice, technology and work organization, human resource studies, unions, industrial relations, management practices including work-life balance, and industry studies as well as topics of current interest or related more generally to the mission of LERA. We encourage submissions from the perspectives of multiple disciplines – including but not limited to economics, sociology, political science, labor and employment law, industrial relations, and human resource studies – and the perspectives of multiple stakeholders, including investors, managers, workers and unions.
The Program Committee recommends a maximum of six (6) participants in your session, including chairs, presenters, and discussants to allow time for questions from the audience. Those wishing to submit papers rather than sessions may do so, but preference will be given to entire panel proposals.
Session organizers are encouraged to include participants representative of the Association’s membership if possible. Proposed sessions that include both labor and management viewpoints and include participants with diverse institutional and geographic backgrounds will be favored. The overall program should reflect the balanced perspectives of our membership.
Papers presented in LERA symposia at the LERA 65th Meeting in conjunction with ASSA/AEA in San Diego will be invited to be published in the LERA Proceedings. Visit the LERA website for complete information about our Proceedings and submission requirements.
To submit an online proposal, visit the LERA website at http://leraweb.org/calls-announcements. To give the program committee an understanding of the proposed panel, we request that symposia organizers provide:
- Symposium title
- Brief abstract or description of session
- Listing of session participants/affiliations, either confirmed or invited, and their role in the session
- Paper titles and brief paper abstract for all papers to be presented in the session
Proposals must be submitted or reach the LERA Office no later than February 17, 2012.
