IIPPE 9th Annual Conference in Political Economy
Pula, Croatia

Joint Call for Papers from the Political Economy of Work and Social Reproduction Working Groups

The Political Economy of Work and Social Reproduction Working Groups invite you to submit proposals for individual papers, themed panels or streams of panels related to our lines of inquiry. These may include theoretical and empirical contributions that focus primarily on the relationship between work and social reproduction. Previous IIPPE conferences have highlighted the clear overlaps and synergies in many contributions on the Political Economy of Work and on Social Reproduction. Our aim at the Pula conference is therefore to deepen and strengthen such synergies. In this spirit, we welcome contributions on the following themes:

  • The relationship between the productive and reproductive sphere
  • Feminist political economy of work
  • Gender, labour movements and capitalism
  • Conceptualising and measuring value in productive and reproductive work
  • Domestic labour, migration and global capitalism
  • The care crisis under capitalism
  • The political economy of time and time-use in relation to work and social reproduction
  • Empirically grounded discussions of concrete, abstract, private, social and caring labour
  • Emotional labour, value, and the political economy of production and social reproduction
  • Gender and inequality in the workplace: the gender pay gap, occupational segregation and other dimensions of gender and inequality in work
  • Debating the feminization of labour

We encourage the submission of panel proposals (consisting of up to four presentations) as an opportunity to showcase the work of study groups in greater depth than is possible in single presentations.

Papers and panel proposals can be submitted on iippe.org by 15 March 2018, ticking the Social Reproduction and/or Political Economy of Work Working Groups as part of your submission.
