A handbook on gender and employment relations is essential for academics, students and policymakers. However, such a text has not been published in the last decade despite ways of working, economies, societies, gender identities and relations, and theories of gender and work developing considerably.
Edward Elgar Publishing has committed to publishing a research handbook on gender and employment relations led by a team of international academics.
Chapters for the handbook will be organised into six sections:
- Theories of work and gender
- Socio-economic and political context for workplace gender inequality
- New ways of working
- Work and care
- Gender identities, workplace diversity and inclusion
- Workplace interventions
The editors invite academics, early career researchers, practitioners and PhD researchers from all around the globe to submit proposals with a focus on theory development or are comparative or empirical in
nature. We are particularly interested in contributions that move us beyond purely western
perspectives, authors and topics.
Authors are invited to submit a 500 word abstract of your proposed chapter by Friday 16 September 2022.
The full call for abstracts is available here.
