International Research Workshop/Call for Papers Exploring the Dynamics of Organizational Working Time Regimes: Managerial, Occupational, and Institutional Perspectives on Extreme Work
29-31 March 2017, University of Graz, Austria
This international research workshop invites empirical and conceptual papers that examine and theorize organizational regimes of excessive working hours, their emergence, evolution, persistence, consequences for employee well-being and work-life balance. The purpose of the workshop is to extend extant lines of inquiry by explicitly examining the organizational, occupational, technological and institutional drivers underlying regimes of excessive working hours in an effort to deepen our knowledge of how to change them. We particularly invite empirical studies and other approaches that look at the emergence, evolution and change of organizational working time regimes.
