Call for Papers: A Workshop on Vulnerability at the Intersection of the Changing Firm and the Changing Family

July 15, 2015 at 2:53 pm Leave a comment

Emory Law will host “Vulnerability at the Intersection of the Changing Firm and the Changing Family” October 16-17, 2015. This workshop will use vulnerability theory to explore the implications of the changing structure of employment and business organizations in the new information age.

This workshop will connect institutional and human vulnerability in the context of work, family, neoliberalism and the new information age. It will consider the implications for critical theory of large-scale changes in the structure of wage labor and employment that place an ideal of stable self-sufficiency beyond the reach of many. The manufacturing era was characterized by the rise of the large firm (which achieved a measure of insulation from market forces), the countervailing force of unions, and the spread of secure employment paying a “family wage.” In contrast, the new information age and its attending forces of globalization and technological change have produced a deepened volatility for companies and workers alike and created a broad series of effects and risks at the intersection of the changing firm and the changing family.
