Precarity Lab

Launched as a joint-project between Boston University‘s Sociology and Management and Organizations departments in April 2020, the Precarity Lab provides doctoral students and faculty members an intellectual community for discussing and developing research projects concerning varieties of precarity in markets, labor, and work.

The Precarity Lab supports its members and other participants by hosting regular gatherings to discuss and workshop ongoing research projects as well as by organizing ad-hoc events (e.g., invited speakers). Generous funding in 2022 from Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future provided seed money for the Lab’s activities.
