Janet presented at 1st International RGCS Symposium in Paris
Last week, Janet took part in the 1st International RGCS Symposium “Work and Workplace Transformations: Between Communities, Doing, and Entrepreneurship” in Paris. She presented a paper on Co-working: Between an emancipatory practice for precarious freelance labour and the commercialization of collaborative work communities and chaired a paper session. RGCS (research group on collaborative work spaces) is a French research initiative, founded and coordinated by Professor François-Xavier de Vaujany (Université Paris-Dauphine), and an independent network and think tank gathering mainly academics in the fields of humanities and social sciences (management, organisation studies, sociology, economics, anthropology…). The symposium marked the first meeting of all international chapters of the RGCS. Since 2016, Janet takes regularly part in the network meetings in London and will also be part of the newly established chapter in Berlin (from March 2017).
