2nd CORAL Late Summer School 02.10.2022 – 06.10.2022 – Open Call for 5 PhD Candidates

“Levels of socio – economic impacts of CWS and their analysis”

This school marks the start of the empirical stage of ESRs projects and aims at focusing on conceptual debates regarding peripherality and development, and link CWS to wider labour struggles in cities and beyond, understanding the turn towards platformization and commodification of labour. Keynote speeches will engage participants in theoretical discussions and expand their conceptual understanding to better explore the developmental processes of CWS in rural and peripheral areas their wider impacts at the local and regional level, as well as at the level of the individual worker and the enterprise. Through workshops, seminars, and roundtable discussions, ESRs and invited PhD candidates will have the opportunity to get trained in transferrable skills such as project management and communicating research through audiovisual means.
