Dear all,


We are seeking submissions for a 2021 online workshop on ‘the social life of skills,’ hosted by the School of Geography and Australia India Institute, University of Melbourne. Contributions will develop social science perspectives on skills and skill development, with a particular focus on the global South (but potentially also precarious contexts in the global North).


The online workshop will take place on the 5th-7th of July 2021. A selection of papers presented at the event will be compiled for a special issue of a journal.


You can find further details and submit your abstract here:


Please feel free to circulate through your networks.


Best wishes,
