Fathers in Work Organizations: Inequalities and Capabilities, Rationalities and Politics

Date: 12 - 14 March 2015

Convenors: Mechtild Oechsle (Bielefeld, GER) and Brigitte Liebig (Olten, SUI)

Recent scholarship on fathers and work-life issues discusses a wide range of impact factors, why traditional role models of fatherhood and work still persist, although fathers today more and more wish to be active caregivers in the family. At this conference we focus on three core issues in the field: (1) life conduct, strategies and capabilities of fathers, (2) gender and organizational culture and social responsibilities, (3) policies and politics of fatherhood. How do policies and actors, and – in a more general way – what kind of mechanisms within work organizations create or prevent capabilities for fathers to participate in family life and child care? In how far can we perceive barriers for an increased involvement of fathers as a matter of inequality not only for women, but also for men and especially for fathers? These topics were dealt with by scholars of different countries and with different institutional contexts.
