"Future of Work: An Inquiry into Discourses and Practices" Symposium, Nov 25-26, 2021

This international conference will be a venue for re- searchers to discuss their pluridisciplinary findings about the ever-growing number of discourses on “the future of work”, as well as the social practices which claim to be anticipating, experimenting or shaping this “future”. Following a five-year closed seminar that has analyzed a substantial sample of discourses from a va- riety of sources, and whose results will be synthetized in the introduction, the time has come to give the floor to researchers who have studied in depth the shaping of these discourses in several contexts.
