Mar 27, 2015 - Labour Pains, Capital Gains

When: Friday March 27, 2015
Where: Ryerson University, 350 Victoria St, Toronto

The goal of this conference is to explore how precarious labour market arrangements and changes to social policy have exacerbated low-waged and no-waged work. Alternate Routes is seeking critical submissions that advance or challenge theoretical approaches, explore the intersections of race, class, gender and other subjectivities in the context of full-time and part-time work, the experiences of migrant and undocumented labour as well as unpaid work in the sphere of social reproduction, voluntary and probationary work.

Conference submissions must be received no later than January 31, 2015. Please include an abstract no longer than 300-words and brief biography. Conference decisions will be made within one week. If you are interested in submitting an article for potential publication but cannot attend the conference, articles must be submitted by May 1, 2015. Conference participation does not guarantee publication. New contributors are encouraged to visit for author guidelines and information.
