We would like to draw your attention to the Call for Papers for Sub-theme 61: The Sociomaterial Organizing of Work and its Consequences for the Constitution of Diversity and Inequalities at the 36th EGOS Colloquium in Hamburg, Germany, July 2–4, 2020. Deadline for the submission of short papers is January 14, 2020!
The aim of this sub-theme is to advance our understanding of the mutual constitution of diversity and related inequalities on the one hand, and the sociomaterial and temporal organizing of work on the other hand. To do so, this stream seeks to encourage a debate between research on inequalities related to diversity and research on the sociomaterial and temporal organizing of work. This will allow us to investigate how gendered, racialized or otherwise asymmetrically categorized identities and group memberships are (re-)produced, shaped and (de-)stabilized by a particular division of labor, modes of task, job and organization design and working time regimes in conjunction with further sociomaterial underpinnings such as spatial design and technological conditions.
Papers may address, but are not limited to, the following topics:
– How does focusing on temporal and sociomaterial ways of organizing allow us to develop new theories about differences, diversity and related inequalities in organizations?
– How are different forms of organizing (e.g., bureaucratic, decentralized, networked) connected to the reproduction or change of diversity-related inequality patterns?
– How do different forms of working time regimes (re-)produce different forms of diversity and inequality regimes?
– How can we conceptualize and investigate the co-constitution of organizational spaces and diversity and related inequalities?
– How is the design – of new forms – of jobs connected to the (re-)production of diversity and related inequalities?
– How does the relationship between current technological, digital and automatized developments and the (re-)production of diversity and related inequalities unfold?
– How is the temporal and sociomaterial organizing of work connected to global inequalities?
– What actual or imagined forms of organizing work could result in diversity-affine organizations as such?
