Work Organisation, Labour & Globalisation welcomes contributions that address the impacts of the digitalisation and algorithmic management on cities.  We are particularly interested in contributions that deal with one or more of the following of the following issues:

  • The social impacts of algorithmic management including the development of new subjectivities;
  • The impacts of algorithmic organisation and management on platform workers
  • The impacts of platformisation on employees in traditional sectors such as hospitality, retail and transport;
  • The spatial impacts of platformisation on cities, including the social and economic transformation of neighbourhoods and landscapes;
  • The emergence of new forms of labour related to online platforms (e.g providing services to Airbnb);
  • The implications of platformisation for urban planning and economic development policies.

We welcome articles from a range of different disciplinary perspectives including (but not limited to) labour sociology, political economy, economic geography, urban planning, policy analysis and gender studies. Articles may draw on the authors’ original quantitative, qualitative or theoretical research but must demonstrate a clear contribution to knowledge and go beyond mere literature reviews.
