Dear Colleagues

We would like to invite you and the representatives of your organizations to participate in the fourth International Conference on ‘Social boundaries of work’, which will take place on October 25th-26th, 2018 in Gdansk, Poland.

The concept of ‘Social Boundaries of Work’ conference was initiated in 2014 and has obtained international acknowledgement. Conference is based on a continuous discussion on the meaning and social boundaries of human work. The event is organized by The Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Gdańsk, Institute of Philosophy, Sociology and Journalism, and the Sociology of Work Section of the Polish Sociological Association.

With our theme ‘Work, knowledge and power in contemporary capitalism’, we invite you to participate in debate focused on the issues of power and knowledge, as well as their embedding in the problems of work. In particular, we will be interested in those aspects of labor relations that take place in the context of broadly defined discussions over the modern knowledge-based economy.

More details on the assumptions and concepts of our conference can be found in the call for paper attached and on the website

Join us in unforgettable Gdańsk 25th-26th of October 2018 for the Social boundaries of work conference.
