[CFP] Conference 2019 – The Future of Work and Social Reproduction

This year’s IIPPE Annual Political Economy Conference will be a joint conference with the French Association for Political Economy/ L’Association Française d’Économie Politique (AFEP), with the participation of the Association for the Development of Keynesian Studies (ADEK), the Association for Heterodox Economics (AHE) and the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE).

The Political Economy of Work and Social Reproduction Working Groups invite you to submit proposals for individual papers or themed 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. Following the successful joint panels at the last IIPPE conference our aim at the Lille conference is to deepen and strengthen synergies across the working groups. In this spirit, we welcome contributions on the following themes:

  • Envisioning a future of work and social reproduction and the challenges to this
  • 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 political economy of time and time-use in relation to work and social reproduction
  • Empirically grounded discussions of concrete, abstract, private, and social labour
  • Emotional labour, value, and the political economy of production and social reproduction
  • Gender and inequality in the workplace
  • Debating the feminization and defeminization of labour
  • The labour theory of value and contemporary labour process theory
  • Paid and unpaid labour in production and social reproduction

We welcome panel proposals and single paper proposals. If you are proposing a panel, all papers need to be submitted individually. In addition, please send an email indicating what papers (with their authors) you would like to be grouped into a panel (give title). This should go to Ourania Dimakou (od1@soas.ac.uk) on the Conference Committee, and please copy in the Social Reproduction and Political Economy of Work working group coordinators, Hannah Bargawi (hb19@soas.ac.uk), Sara Stevano (Sara.Stevano@uwe.ac.uk) and Matt Cole (bnmc@leeds.ac.uk).
