Visiting Professor

University of Oviedo, Spain


I work in the tradition of comparative and institutional political economy on a range of issues related to employment relations, transnational corporations, and industrial restructuring. I am co-author of the main handbook on Sociology of Work and Industrial Relations in Spanish, (Manual de la Sociología del Trabajo y de las Relaciones Laborales with Antonio Martín Artiles, Ed. Delta Publicaciones Madrid (3rd edition 2010).

During my visit to UBC I will work closely with Professor Jamie Peck on questions such as “Is there a Canadian variety of capitalism?” and “What mode of regulation characterizes the Canadian capitalist model?”. I will also work in contact with Professor Kurt Hübner from the Institute for European Studies.
