Sorry for cross postings.

I thought this might be of interest to some of you and would probably
correct the US-bias of the papers. <smile>

Subject: [anthrodesign] Call for Papers on the Culture of Remote/Mobile Work


Brigitte Jordan, Julia Gluesing and I, Tracy Meerwarth, are calling
for papers that speak to the culture of mobile work.  The goal of
this effort is to produce a book or special journal issue on this
topic. This volume is designed to explore the sociality of
remote/mobile work rather than on specific technologies. Please read
the description below, and if you are interested and would like to be
considered as a contributor to this publication, please contact Tracy
Meerwarth via email at [log in to unmask] <mailto:tlm%40consbrgs.com> .
Abstract

The purpose of the publication is to explore the interface between
technology and culture from the standpoint of remote/mobile workers
as well as from the perspective of the researchers who study this
community. There appears to be a general focus in the literature on
the technical side of remote work rather than on exploring the social
aspects of this growing trend.  This publication offers an
opportunity to inform people about an increasingly important area of
work culture, provide insights into how remote work is affecting the
lives of those who practice it, and investigate the broader social
connections (e.g., work colleagues, communities, spouses,
relationships) that surround this transformation. It also gives us an
opportunity to focus on the sociality of work technologies and
remote/mobile work processes rather than specific technologies
themselves.  In this way we are able to describe and understand how
technology and culture mutually shape one another with the
consequential benefits and burdens to personal lives.  Authors also
may offer solutions and suggestions of how to manage mobile work with
the social and cultural in mind.
