  • Self-entrepreneurship in uncertain futures: The case of performing artists
           in Italy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Emanuela Naclerio
      Pages: 142 - 160
      Abstract: International Sociology, Volume 38, Issue 1, Page 142-160, January 2023.
      This article contributes to contemporary debates on self-entrepreneurship in cultural work by focusing on project-based theatre actors in Italy. Drawing on in-depth interviews, the study considers performing artists’ narratives of success, unsuccess, and future expectations to shed light on how entrepreneurial projects are negotiated in neoliberal cultural work. The article expands current research by considering how self-entrepreneurial projects are lived out in insecure working environments, taking into account a geographical area and a creative sector often overlooked by studies of creative labour. In a context where precariousness is normalised, actors’ discourses point at the emergence of disaffection towards neoliberal entrepreneurial ideals of autonomy and competition and to the loss of a progressive idea of biographical projects. The research highlights that an ongoing status of insecurity can mine optimistic and entrepreneurial orientations, questioning the sustainability of neoliberal ethos of work as a future-oriented project in times of enhanced insecurity.

  • How do you know' Seven theses on qualitative sociology as theory and
           method

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Claudio E Benzecry
      First page: 5
      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      In its seven theses, this article discusses: (a) how different qualitative sociology is from other approaches; (b) the role of ‘casing’ in generating both units of analysis and settings; (c) the theoretical and empirical work of adjudicating what some emergent phenomena is a case of; (d) the ‘modelization’ through writing of our case as a research object; (e) the rhetorical construction of causality and the central role of ‘puzzles’ on it; (f) the reflexive epistemological vigilance about the role of the participant observer in producing the knowledge they generate; and (g) the reconceptualization of qualitative sociology as a type of epistemological package, and of theorization, in consequence, as a kind of practical activity.

  • Contextualising planned behaviours to the vaccination against COVID-19 in
           the European Union

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dumitru Sandu
      First page: 22
      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      The article targets the reasons that are behind behaviour orientation in the vaccination process against COVID-19. The data we are using come from the Flash Eurobarometer 494, collected in May 2021. The key dependent variable puts together vaccination intentions (soon, later on in 2021, undecided, later, never) and the fact of being vaccinated or not. A multivariate and multilevel analysis confirms the validity of an extended theory of planned behaviour in explaining the orientation to the vaccination against COVID-19. The space patterning of the behaviours is highly marked by differences among Old versus the New Member States of the European Union, clusters of countries, urban versus rural areas, and also by a function of trust in relevant institutions, and customs of using vaccination to cope with different diseases as an adult. New questions and hypotheses are generated by multiple comparisons.

  • Lack of ‘common sense’ in the climate change debate: Media behaviour
           and climate change awareness

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Maria Laura Ruiu, Gabriele Ruiu, Massimo Ragnedda
      First page: 46
      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Based on an online survey conducted among a representative sample in the United Kingdom (n = 1013), this article investigates the role of traditional and new media in predicting climate change awareness. It suggests that individuals make choices under an ideological convincement that is organised within specific cultural and political-economic boundaries. It shows that the Gramscian concept of cultural hegemony is still valuable to make sense of an incessant process of formation and fragmentation of equilibria between social groups. Interpreting hegemony as a not totalitarian communicative process also suggests that the media represent a ground for counterhegemonies to flourish and trigger political transformation. This study constructs two indexes of both scepticism and advocacy of climate change by showing some traits of these two perspectives in the United Kingdom. It also shows that the division between sceptics and advocates’ convincement is not ‘black and white’, but a transitional space exists between hegemonic and counter-hegemonic forces.

  • Analysis of longitudinal causal relationships between gender role
           attitudes and labor market participation of young women

      Authors: Hanryeo Lim, Sungpyo Hong

      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      The purpose of this study was to analyze the longitudinal causal relationship between gender role attitudes and the labor market participation of young women in Korea. This study used the data of 902 young women from the 2nd to the 7th waves of the Korean Longitudinal Survey of Women and Families. The methods used were the autoregressive cross-lagged model and multivariate latent growth. Women’s participation in the labor market promoted equal gender role attitudes, and the effect had a lasting impact into the future. On the other hand, the fact that women had an equal gender role attitude did not have a significant effect on their subsequent labor market participation. In addition, the experience of pregnancy reduced women’s participation in the labor market, demonstrating women’s career interruption. Through the results of the study, the necessity of an active employment policy to promote women’s entry into the labor market and prevent career interruption was emphasized.

  • Fear of crime in the context of gender and ambivalent sexism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Burcu Türk, Nurcan Hamzaoglu, Aslı Yayak, Gülçin Şenyuva
      First page: 99
      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      In this study, the relationships between gender perceptions and ambivalent sexism were examined based on the fear of crime of the participants over 18. In this context, participants responded to the questions of the sociodemographic survey, gender perception scale, ambivalent sexism inventory, and fear of crime scale. According to the findings, the female participants were more frequently the victims of crime than men and more often exposed to hate crimes, sexual harassment, and domestic violence. Besides, the mean score of women’s fear of crime scale was found to be significantly higher than that of men. The mean score of the gender perception scale of female participants was significantly higher than that of men. A positive and significant relationship was found between the scores of gender perception and fear of crime scales. In other words, as gender perception increases, the fear of being a victim of a crime also increases.

  • Teaching under opportunism: The predicament of academic tutors in China

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Dongdong Pan, Yisu Zhou

      Abstract: International Sociology, Ahead of Print.
      Academic tutoring as a supplementary form of education has quickly spread across China. Tutoring has attracted young college-educated practitioners and has become a highly organized industry. The industry is fast-churning and opportunistic. This article examines the nature of tutors’ work using the qualitative data of 31 tutors and their managers in Beijing. Characteristics of tutoring are typical of precarious service labor with irregular work schedules, blurred work–life boundaries, and artificial emotional labor. However, we also found that tutors’ work was constrained by their invisible neighbor, schoolteachers, in a linked professional ecology. Tutors have limited jurisdiction over daily tasks and perform reactionary teaching based on school subjects. This lack of control has allowed the industry to rationalize their work, making tutors disposable. Our research offers new insights into the linked professions of tutors and schoolteachers. It enriches the concept of precarious and opportunistic labor practices from the sociology of professions perspective.
