Please note the upcoming workshop on Central and eastern European employment relations in perspective: history, geography and variegation, which will take place on the 30th January 2015 at University of Greenwich. The workshop is organized by the Work and Employment Research Unit of the University of Greenwich and International Employment Relations Association (Europe). It aims to provide transdisciplinary and critical perspectives on political and socio-economic restructuring that has characterised post-socialist central and eastern European (CEE) countries in order to discuss changed and transnationalised employment relations, re-valuation and (self)disciplining of subjectivities, resistance and variegated forms of capitalisms that characterise contemporary CEE region and its relations with the West.

Dear Section Members,
We are writing because we have learned that a significant number of members in this section also are members of the social psychology section. Effective August 1, 2014, we became the new coeditors of Social Psychology Quarterly. In an effort to expand the breadth of the journal, we are reaching out to you to encourage you to consider submitting your work to SPQ. We would like to attract more contributions to the journal from a broad base of researchers who use social psychological approaches. We think that for many in this section, this would include your work.
With the beginning of the new academic year, I would like to kindly draw your attention to the Economic Sociology and Political Economy online academic community.
The ES/PE community’s goal is to disseminate the insights of socio-political research of the economy to the public and academics; and to serve as a platform on which our members (already more than 23,000 researchers, students, practitioners and activists from 90 countries) share relevant information, exchange ideas and create collaborations (generating about 50,000 monthly website visits)
