WEBINAR – Re/defining essential work through migration during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Datum
23. April April 2021 

23 April, Fri­day, 2pm CET/9am Argenti­na, online

please reg­is­ter to via eventbrite to receive a zoom link : https://www.eventbrite.fi/e/150797301789

This webi­nar is aimed to explore the inter­sec­tion of three debates that con­verged ever clos­er dur­ing the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic . First­ly, we draw on empir­i­cal­ly-ground­ed stud­ies of the change of pro­duc­tive and repro­duc­tive work under advanced cap­i­tal­ism with an empha­sis on the infor­mal and gig econ­o­my. We con­nect these to recent research on the link between migra­tion and social class, which has chal­lenged dis­cus­sions of cul­tur­al cap­i­tal as mere­ly trans­port­ed across bor­ders, urg­ing schol­ars to explore how it is dif­fer­en­tial­ly acti­vat­ed by indi­vid­ual migrants. We inter­sect these two debates with the emerg­ing dis­cus­sions on the bro­ken link between val­ori­sa­tion and remu­ner­a­tion of ‚essen­tial work’ under the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic and the dif­fi­cult rela­tion between ‚risk’ and ’skill’, ‚worth’ and ‚reward’ espe­cial­ly for pre­car­i­ous and migrant work­ers. The webi­nar aims to con­tribute to the ongo­ing debates on the rise and fall of the pro­gres­sive cycle of Latin Amer­i­ca, and to lay the foun­da­tion for a larg­er process rethink­ing the link between migra­tion, labour, social mobil­i­ty in large process­es of social transformation.

The event will take place online, please reg­is­ter so a zoom link is sent to you.

It will be in Eng­lish and Span­ish with simul­ta­ne­ous translation.
