Tag Archives: Sociology of Employment



In 2012 Work, Employment and Society celebrates 25 successful years of publishing quality research in the sociology of work and employment!

To mark this landmark, we are planning a series of activities to mark the WES contributions to debates in work and employment over the last 25 years. The celebrations will culminate in a Special Issue of the journal to be published in February 2013.

The Editors are inviting submissions for consideration in the 25-year Special Issue. Submissions should either reflect on key debates launched by WES, review ‘hot topics’ of interest to scholars of work and employment or analyse the ‘direction of travel’ of the sociology of work and employment over the past 25 years. Papers that are broad in scope, review extant WES debates or re-appraise seminal WES contributions will be particularly welcome.
