Symposium 15th March 2019 – Call for Papers!

Deadline for submissions is 25th January 2019.

Kindly sponsored by the BSA’s Postgraduate Forum, we are excited to publish this call for papers for the Gender and Working Lives Early Career Symposium.

Human labour, both waged and non-waged, is central to the reproduction of society as a whole. This one day multi-disciplinary symposium at the University of Cambridge will showcase new scholarship exploring gendered perspectives on work and social reproduction. The symposium seeks to bring together emerging research under the broad theme of gender and working lives.

We welcome contributions exploring gender and work in relation to the following themes and beyond:
beyond:
• Production/reproduction
• Temporalities, work rhythms and generations.
• Diverse/marginal economies.
• Precarity and informality
• Global care chains and migration
• Embodiment and materialities

We especially invite submissions from early career scholars and welcome sociological papers as well as contributions from across the social sciences including interdisciplinary work.

Submissions should include a 250-300 word outline of the 20-minute paper and a brief biography of the presenter. We also welcome proposals for fully formed panels.

We also invite submissions of posters featuring relevant research, to be displayed at the symposium.

Please email submissions and enquiries to Jules Allen at jla53@cam.ac.uk.

Happy New Year!

We made a website! 🙂

In 2019 we are excited to be holding our first conference on Gender and Working Lives, kindly sponsored by the British Sociological Association’s Postgraduate Forum.

We will be showcasing emerging research under the broad theme of gender and working lives, with a focus on Postgraduate and Early Career work.
