This line of research focuses on current social transformations and their historical dimension, with reference to their implications for the social structure, for power relationships, and for the constitution of sociabilities and subjectivities. Changes in work, production and social reproduction give new meanings to social action, as well as to the categories of space, time, moralities and identity negotiations. Cities become privileged localities of new social and spatial inequalities, as well as sites of struggle. This line of research includes topics such as globalization, technological innovations and the labor market; professions; creative and immaterial work and reconfiguration of social classes; social actors and collective action; social, occupational and spatial mobility; peripheries and urban social movements, territorialities and migrations; new forms of solidarity, moral markets and religiosity.
