Sociology of work
LTRAV2200 2018-2019 Louvain-la-Neuve
de Nanteuil Matthieu ; Ferreras Isabelle (coordinator) ;
- The genesis and pathway of the sociology of work (abandonment of the de-terminist paradigm, development of the subject-based matrix, and slippage from an issue centred on work situation to one of employment). - Transformations of the organisation of production (the division of labour at the heart of the socio-technical approach, the crisis of Taylorism, and new forms of work organisation). - The enterprise and its logics of action. - A societal analysis of kinds of employment and of skill; the sociology of unemployment. - Identities in the workplace, and forms of insertion. - Departures from industrial society.
- To focus on the analytical programmes and proposals that make up the cor-pus of the sociology of work and employment. - To make a methodological comparison between the various (monographic, sectoral, typological and societal) approaches to empirical research that constitute this corpus. - To acquire a heuristic understanding of forms of employment at the level of Belgian society.
So as to privilege the work of group and the reflexion on the topical questions, the course proposes a specific methodology: regrouping of the lectures over the first two weeks (4 x 4 hours meetings); proposal of sets of themes families for the realization of work; organization of 3 meetings of presentation of the state of progress of the work during the four-monthly period This course forms part of a study programme that takes place in the evenings and on Saturday mornings.
