Emerald book series Women, Economics and the Labour Relations
Series Editor: Martina Topic, Leeds Beckett University, UK
This series aims to publish monographs and edited collections (in the region of 70,000-90,000 words) that tackle the position of women in the economy as well as explore labour relations. By labour relations, it means studying human relations in work in its broadest sense and analysing how labour relations affect social inequality with particular reference to women. In terms of social inequality, this series particularly welcomes analyses of women and class and broader analyses of labour relations.
The series will publish perspectives from around the world and thus the series fits into the understanding of labour relations through both work relations in a Western sense and non-Western forms of labour. The series is also interested in studies of the position of women in worker’s unions, stance on women’s affairs within workers unions, and the position of women and women’s affairs in labour movements.
Both historical and contemporary perspectives are welcome. Studies in industrial and economic sociology are particularly welcome. The book series aims to publish books from a variety of perspectives. Also, the book series will accept case study perspectives on women working in various industries, particularly the position of women in working-class positions, e.g. factory workers, supermarket workers, etc. Studies on women in feminized industries (e.g. nursing, teaching, PR) and masculine industries (construction, business, finance) are equally welcome.
