Dates:
September 17-19, 2015
Description:
51st ITH Conference / International Conference of Labour and Social History
Location:
Berlin, Berlin Social Science Center (WZB), Reichpietschufer 50, Germany
Subject:
The 51st ITH Conference investigates the topic of ???work and non-work?? in an interdisciplinary perspective, in particular, from the point of view of the political construction of work and non-work. This approach is based on a broad notion of politics. The conference aims to contribute to denaturalising and re-politicising the concept and the practice of work and non-work and to highlight both work and non-work as a social relationship. The definition of certain activities as work or non-work and the relation between these poles have always been closely related to economic and socio-political policies, business strategies and social conflicts and struggles. Specifically, four (to some degree overlapping) focuses are central to the conference theme: 1.) Production of work and non-work 2.) Everyday life between work and non-work 3.) Movements against (wage) labour 4.) Politics of knowledge production [gem?_?? den Informationen des Anbieters - according to site editor's information]
