Annalisa Murgia

Annalisa Murgia is associate professor in Sociology at the Department of Social and Political Science of the University of Milan, Italy. She is the Principal Investigator of the ERC project SHARE: Seizing the Hybrid Areas of Work by Re-presenting Self-Employment (2017-2022). In 2015-2017, she coordinated the European FP7 project GARCIA – ‘Gendering the Academy and Research: Combating career Instability and Asymmetries’ at the University of Trento. Her current scientific production is articulated in three main directions. The first one explores the role of subjectivity in shaping individual biographies, paying specific attention to precarious workers. The second research area investigates the emerging forms of coalition in relation to the current crisis of the traditional models of collective representation. The third line of research lies in the debate on the construction of gender differences in organisations. Her work has been published, among others, in Organization, Gender, Work & Organization, Research in the Sociology of Organizations, Management Learning, Journal of Cultural Economy, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. She recently co-edited the volumes Mapping Precariousness, Labour Insecurity and Uncertain Livelihoods (Routledge, 2017), with E. Armano and A. Bove, and Gender and Precarious Research Careers: A Comparative Analysis (Routledge, 2018), with B. Poggio.
