5th Marie Jahoda Summer School of Sociology

Between July 6 and July 10 2015

the 5th Marie Marie Jahoda Summer School of Sociology on digitization of work will take place in Vienna.

PhD-students and early stage researchers are welcome to apply for the Summer School. The event is held in close cooperation between the Department of Sociology (University of Vienna) and the COST Action IS 1202 –Dynamics of virtual work.

The Marie Jahoda Summer School will explore recent developments of digital work and labour within corporations, along global value chains and over the internet. In this context new questions arise. How are workers’ identities shaped? What are their individual and collective reactions to these new forms of work? How do boundaries between paid and unpaid work shift? What do these processes mean for the gendered division of labour? Does the shifting international division of labor provide new perspectives for labour markets and development in the Global South? To what extend is work embedded in particular localities?

Applicants are asked to submit their abstracts until  February 28 to costis1202@herts.ac.uk.

Participants from COST member countries have the possibility to apply for a flat rate grant.

Please spread the call for papers to anybody it may concern. Further information can be found on the webpage or on the attached flyer. soz.univie.ac.at/summerschool


Best wishes, Franz Astleithner (Local Organizing Committee)
