2021 (English)In: Working Life and Gender Inequality: intersectional perspectives and the spatial practices of peripheralization / [ed] Angelika Sjöstedt; Katarina Giritli Nygren; Marianna Fotaki, New York: Routledge, 2021, p. 308-Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter explores various meanings of organizational peripheries in the extent literature on Swedish mining companies from an intersectional perspective. Drawing on Acker’s thoughts on organizational inequality regimes, and the fluidity of organizational boundaries, enables a focus on how inequalities are produces in the leaking entanglement between the imagined margins of organizations and their surroundings. Two empirical examples are used. The first example explores inequalities at the centre of mining work and major mining companies, and the second investigates inequalities at the margins of mining work and scrutinizes the mine as a ‘multi-employer work site’. The findings suggest complex ways in which the organizing of work and people are entangled together in relations of power and spatial dimensions of interdependency, relating to intersections of gender, class and place in the mining industry and its surroundings. The chapter concludes that going to the ‘margins’ of mine work help to nuance understanding of the processes and practices that produce inequalities at both the centre and margins of large industrial mining organizations.
