Mini-conference on “The Political Economy of Work and Labor Markets”

Mini-conference on “The Political Economy of Work and Labor Markets: Workplace Regimes in Comparative Perspective”, SASE Chicago 2014

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: https://sase.org/mini-conferences/themes_fr_182.html#MC6

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.

Best wishes,
