24th Annual International Labour Process Conference

Some employees work to live, others live to work and for others no distinction can be made between the two. The relationship between work and life was once a major focus of analysis but disappeared with the decline of manufacturing and the death of traditional occupational communities. Recent developments suggest that the work-life boundary should again become an analytical focus. These developments include the changing locations of work; new forms of work; work intensification; the individualisation of employment relations; non-standard forms of employment; the blurring of work and non-work identities. This list is not exclusive. The organisers welcome papers that empirically and/or conceptually critically analyse the drivers, processes and outcomes of these and other similar developments as they affect how the forms of work-life boundary are perceived, experienced and shaped.  

A special stream on the work-life boundary will be a feature of the 24th Annual International Labour Process Conference hosted by the University of London 10-12 April 2006. The organisers of the stream are Doris Eikhof of University of Economics and Business Administration Vienna, Axel Haunschild of the University of London and Chris Warhurst of the University of Strathclyde.

The Annual International Labour Process Conference is a leading international conference on work and employment. It brings together academics and policy makers from the sociology of work and employment, labour studies, business and management, human resource management, industrial relations, organisation studies and a range of other disciplines.

The Schools of Management from Royal Holloway and Birkbeck College, University of London will jointly organise the conference which will be hosted by Birkbeck in their Central London Clore Management Centre.
