We are pleased to have published in 2016 and 2017 a two-part special issue on the precariousness of knowledge workers, guest-edited by Annalisa Murgia, Lara Maestripieri and Emiliana Armano. Further information can be found here (Part 1) and here (Part 2).
Building on this experience we are inviting proposals for further guest-edited special issues. Please send proposals here. Proposals should include a short summary of the theme of the issue (max 800 words) together with an indicative list of contributions.
We are also looking for articles (both theoretical and empirical) on the following topics:
- the development of the platform economy and its implications for workers
- the formalisation of the informal economy
- the impact of automation on the quality and quantity of jobs
- shifting boundaries between manual and non-manual work
We particularly welcome contributions from the global South and articles that explore the gendered and racialised dimensions of changes in the organisation of work.
Please send abstracts or full articles to the editor here.
