28th International Labour Process Conference
March 15-17, 2010
Rutgers is located in New Brunswick, New Jersey - a vibrant city of 50,000 residents, a number that triples during the business day with college students, corporate and business employees, hospital and health care workers and visitors. It is conveniently located 20 minutes from Newark, one of New York’s main airports, and just forty minutes from New York City itself. New Brunswick is a community with richly diverse neighborhoods, a bustling downtown, and an innovative and popular cultural arts center. Within a few city blocks converge Johnson & Johnson's world headquarters, Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey, the country's largest medical school, two premiere academic hospitals, three professional theaters, several four-star restaurants, and two fourstar hotels. The International Labour Process Conference is one of the longest established and best known forums for analysis of all aspects of work and employment. In 2010, the ILPC moves out of Europe and to North America for the first time. During its 28 year history it has earned a reputation as a cornerstone of empirical research and cutting edge theoretical debate within the labour process and work organization tradition. It is hard to imagine contemporary radical research which is not influenced by labour process insights. Every year, the conference brings together academics and policy makers from the sociology of work and employment, business and management studies, human resource management, industrial relations, organizational analysis and a range of other disciplines to discuss and critically assess developments in the field.
