The international symposium “Disability, between individual trajectories and institutional rationale : employment, work and social policy”, funded within the framework of the IReSP/MiRe/CNSA calls for projects, aims to take stock of French research while welcoming international contributions on issues relating to disability, employment and social policies. The symposium will take place on Thursday 11 April and Friday 12 April 2013 at the University of Lille 3, France.
The papers, expected in English or French, will be divided into three issues:
- Disabled people and employment policies
- Disabled people at work
- Occupational interruptions and biographical rupture
Research presented should involve any national or supra-national context and may relate to institutions, individual life courses or, ideally, both. Methods used may be quantitative, qualitative or archive-based.
Deadline for proposed papers: *Monday 3 December 2012*
You will find in the full length call for papers in English and in French, and all information on the symposium will be – gradually – put on this webpage : http://www.ceriesrqth.net/colloque/
There will be no registration fee for our symposium, and we will provide French food and wine to our contributors and discussants. However it will be more difficult to fund transportation and accommodation – still, some exceptions are possible if your institution can’t grant it.
We are enthusiastically looking forward receiving your papers’s proposals.
