CfP Welfare e Ergonomia n.2/2023 | Giovani Oltre gli stereotipi

Si segnala la call for paper della rivista Welfare e Ergonomia n.2/2023 sul tema “Giovani Oltre gli stereotipi” a cura di Carlo Buzzi.

I cambiamenti che hanno caratterizzato negli ultimi decenni le società occidentali hanno contribuito a creare un mondo in continua e rapidissima evoluzione nel quale le generazioni modificano incessantemente condizioni di vita, bisogni, motivazioni. In particolare è stata soprattutto la popolazione giovanile a manifestare le più visibili tendenze evolutive rispetto al passato dal punto di vista demografico, economico, sociale e culturale. Nei primi tre ambiti molti sono gli studi che hanno messo in evidenza la ricaduta sulle nuove generazioni; nel quarto, ovvero quello che concerne gli aspetti culturali, le analisi si sono invece sovente fermate alla descrizione dei fenomeni, ma i tentativi di riflessione critica sulla cultura giovanile, come effetto delle trasformazioni strutturali o sociali, sono piuttosto carenti ed è su questi ultimi aspetti che la call intende rispondere.

Gli interessati sono invitati a presentare un abstract di circa 3000 caratteri entro il 12 aprile 2023 ai seguenti indirizzi:,,

European economies in transition.
On the way to pro-environmental and prosocial economies

Societal, environmental, political and economic crises are expanding and demand that we rethink and reorganize our way of living. Rapid, global changes in the economy are part of this process. In the past decades, changes in the economy, such as the internationalization of financial and goods flows, market deregulation, crises and the process of digitalization have been strong drivers of change. We now observe new and rising socio-structural challenges such as climate change, large-scale migration, pandemics, natural catastrophes and the reemergence of nationalism and war.

Challenges like climate change demand that we rethink the classic models of production and consumption, which are based on market competition and the use of fossil fuels. They force us to elaborate and study the foundations and functioning of alternative models and thereby critique the dominant perspectives of markets. Nature can no longer be seen as a passive resource pool to be exploited for economic purposes. Instead, these
challenges demand that we, as social scientists, reconnect societal, economic, environmental and political aspects in order to analyze the current situation and explore adequate solutions.

Sociologists, as well as other social scientists, often focus on a prosperous, and stable socio-economic order. However, in light of the ongoing challenges we need to start thinking about the foundations, elements and mechanisms of more sustainable, equitable, and inclusive economic and societal models. In this sense, we need to figure out the trajectories of transformation processes and different imaginaries and models of socio-economic transitions. Sociology can use its tool to decipher central actors, networks and institutions in the process of transformation. In this dramatic historical moment, new social movements asking for urgent socio-economic changes and ongoing experiments of new forms of economic coordination become most interesting topics to economic sociologists and beyond.

The conference will discuss different socio-economic changes and how societies and economies in Europe are trying to cope with them. The focus is on transition models, new experiments and alternative, hybrid forms of organizing the economy. Thus, papers dealing with the overall conference theme and considering specific features of the ongoing socio-economic transitions are welcome. Nevertheless, we also appreciate presentations and sessions related to economic sociology in general. Thus, we invite proposals on

• current developments and transformations focusing on Europe
• studies on and experiments with sustainable economies
• challenges in the market economy such as digitalization and globalization
• studies on market dynamics and democratic institutions in times of crises
• new theoretical and empirical developments in economic sociology

Proposals could either be for individual presenters or sessions including up to 4 contributors. Inter- and multi-disciplinary contributions as well as contributions from other social sciences disciplines and early career scholars are highly welcome. Please send your proposal (about 150 words giving 3-5 keywords, your name, institution and title) to latest by May 1, 2023.

We will offer opportunities to establish thematic working groups among
participants during the conference in order to develop joint research projects and publications. Participants will be asked if and in which thematic working group(s) they would like to participate during the registration process. Keynote speakers will contribute to the conference and will be announced soon. The conference language is English.

ESA Research Network 30 ‘Youth and Generation’ | Youth in the post-pandemic: from experiences of inequalities to new opportunities for solidarities

The COVID-19 outbreak and now the cost-of-living crisis have led to worldwide fast-paced and unprecedented socio-economic and political changes with deep implications for young people’s education, future plans and employment prospects, but also for their everyday and social lives.

In this context, the 2023 RN30 ESA Mid-term Conference in Sardinia (20th-23rd September 2023) seeks to account for the continuity between pre-pandemic and post-pandemic experiences of inequalities while also exploring how young people come together to forge new forms of solidarities channeling their active responses and commitment to change with and through companionship with their peers.

The organizares invite collegues to submit abstracts of max 300 words which explore youth unequal experiences and solidarities in multiple fields, such as young people’s views of the future during times of increased risk and uncertainty; education and employment prospects; youth identities; activism and civic engagement; experiences of migration and mobilities; youth cultures and subcultures; transitions to adulthood and more. Comparative perspectives on how youth are experiencing inequalities and solidarities in the past or beyond Europe are also welcome.

Abstract are to be sent to and by the 13th March 2023.
