The goals of this joint project are: 1. the advancement of the understanding of occupational identity and the gig economy, using a dataset on arts and arts-related industries as an initial case study, 2. the expansion of a network of French and American scholars studying non-standard employment and its consequences on workers and occupations, and 3. the dissemination of project findings via peer-review publications. The project will proceed with two workshops for graduate students and scholars held in New York and Paris when the principal investigators will be visiting their respective universities.
