In order to gain a deeper understanding of working life's gender relations, gender coding/gender labeling of work and place needs to be understood as a unit. The theme issue is based on research at the intersection between gender studies, work science and cultural geography. The content is structured based on a three-part model:
- studies on local and regional labor markets and their gender relations
- research with a focus on material and spatial aspects of the organization of work
- studies on how ideas about place affect employees' daily work
Publication of the magazine's theme issue is planned for spring 2024.
