EASTERN SOCIOLOGICAL SOCIETY (ESS)
ANNUAL MEETING
BALTIMORE, MD

This paper session, titled “Gender and Work,” invites theoretical and/or empirical research that explores gender gaps in work outcomes and/or gender inequality in the workplace. We are mainly interested in papers exploring the centrality of work to the reproduction of gendered inequalities. Papers that draw on a variety of theoretical perspectives and workplace contexts to explore these themes are especially welcome. Likewise, we welcome papers with policy implications on how to improve the workplace environment from a gender perspective, and its influences on other non-work domains (such as family).

Please send your abstracts (not more than 250 words) to session organizer Deniz Yucel, yuceld@wpunj.edu NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 12, 2017.

Dates and location:
Mannheim Centre for European Social Research (MZES) of the University of Mannheim on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18, 2017.[1]

Theme:
Labor market and economic sociologists take notice of each other less often than common concerns might suggest. This ignorance is particularly troubling amid the large-scale influx of immigrants and refugees into established economies over the past few years in particular and the past decade in general. Among these changes, issues of employment and emergent economic activities, which both fields focus on, gain in significance and salience. Labor market sociologists demonstrate that unregulated labor markets are neither free nor fair, diminishing hopes for quick integration. A focus on the distribution of relevant worker characteristics over a range of social dimensions such as class, gender, and ethnicity allows labor market sociologists to develop more constructive views of labor market mechanisms. Economic sociologists scrutinize dynamics around the establishment of larger social objects such as industries and “informal economies”, some of which are dominated by immigrant ethnic groups. In more specific settings, economic sociologists have found evidence that ethnic diversity—an obvious consequence of migration—increases the resilience of common market mechanisms. The conference seeks to foster a dialogue between the two views in order to develop conceptual, analytical, and empirical strategies that help us study and understand the forces undergirding the recent developments and their consequences.

Submission:
