New Papers of Interest on Work and Organizations

A note from the editor of Research in the Sociology of Work

OOW members will be pleased to learn a few things about RSW, one of the section’s two scholarly outlets (sister of Research in the Sociology of Organizations, edited by Michael Lounsbury).

Volume 30 of RSW, entitled Emerging Conceptions of Work, Management, and the Labor Market, has just been published. It contains articles on a wide array of themes and topics, including organizational change in health care organizations, the workings of internal labor markets in the financial industry, the link between management rhetoric and corporate downsizing, racial disparities at work after the great recession, and the authority systems found in UK call centers.

Readers will want to pay special attention to the paper by Ofer Sharone, addressing a gaping hole in much labor market analysis: how the digital revolution has transformed the job search process. Here’s a link to an open access portal, providing readers with direct access to Sharone’s paper for a limited time. Note that this link also provides access to a number of other prominent RSW papers, including work by Nancy DiTomaso, Arne Kalleberg, Michel Anteby, and Carolyn Perrucci. Here’s the link to copy and paste, if need be:

And as a special treat, listen to an interview with Ofer Sharone via this podcast (or copy and paste if need be, here): 

Best regards to all
