WORK2019 Conference in Helsinki, 14-16 August 2019

Third and final call for abstracts to WORK2019
Welcome to the fourth International Interdisciplinary Conference on Research on Work and Working life held 14-16 August 2019, in Helsinki, Finland. The 2019 conference will look forward with the theme ‘Real Work in the Virtual World’.We cordially invite you to submit an individual abstract to the streams linked below. Submission of abstracts is now open on the conference webpage

The theme for the Conference, ‘Real Work in the Virtual World’ addresses the changing contents of work and upheavals in current and future work, as well as the changing nature of work across occupations, industries and countries. Work is currently being reorganized globally, with consequences that reinforce some global trends and divisions, and give rise to new ones. Current features of e.g. digitalization concern not only the contents of work, and the modes and ways of doing work, but also the future of labour. What kind of society will we create through the changes? How to think about work and its value? The theme for WORK2019 calls for bold analyses of the contours and boundaries of work and working in ways, which demand new understandings, both theoretically and empirically.

The deadline for abstract submission is 15 January 2019.
