CFP on gender and work in rural regions: Rural Frontiers In-between Tradition and Change

Are you doing research in the field of gender and work in rural regions?

We call for contributions to a stream on gender and work in rural regions for the Gender Work and Organization conference, 24-26 June 2020 in University of Kent, Canterbury, UK.

While much of the research on gender, work, organization and entrepreneurship is conducted in urban settings, we are interested in contributions that analyse the impact of a rural context on gendered working conditions and relationships. More discussion is needed on how rural and sparsely populated regions experience the current societal changes and their impact on working lives. Intersections of gender with age, race, ethnicity, class, caste and sexuality in relation to daily life around work need to be discussed with rurality in focus.

Abstracts of approximately 500 words are invited by Friday 1st November 2019, emailed to Hilde G. Corneliussen:
