It is with great pleasure that I announce the publication of the special issue entitled “Pro-sumers on the move: overcoming the line between labour and consumption”, co-edited with my colleagues and friends Davide Arcidiacono, Allison Loconto and Antonello Podda. The issue has been published in Sociologia del Lavoro (4/2018), which is the main Italian journal that publish articles on sociology of work.
The special issue offers a wide range of articles from Italian and International scholars that aims at investigating the heuristic capacity of the concept of prosumerism in the analysis of labour, consumption and social protection. In particular, in the introduction I discuss the term in the domain of welfare studies, linking it in particular with studies on social innovation.
