How does the working class work? Work, labour regimes and the working class in world perspectives

This workshop will bring together international scholars working in the area of labour studies, political economy, economic geography, sociology and anthropology to assess, generate new knowledge and set a research agenda on contemporary reconfigurations of work and class at a time of accelerated changes in both Europe and the world The goal of the workshop is to look at the articulation between class composition and capital accumulation as expressed in specific forms of workers and class struggles in different world regions. Specific questions will include: what sort of demands are emerging from today’s working class? How is this composed in different geographical realities? What sort of social forces and forms of organisation are emerging and how are these shaped by existing labour regimes?
