The pandemic has shaken our fieldwork activities to the core, if by fieldwork we mean working ‘in the field’. Even though it can be very demanding, we should adapt – when possible – to the new reality, and learn from it, writes Matteo Marenco
PhD candidate in Political Science and Sociology, Scuola Normale Superiore
Matteo is generally interested in how 'digitalisation' has been politically problematised. His main work investigates policy responses to the rise of digital labour platforms in mature political economies. To do so, it delves into coalitional dynamics between governments and social partners, platforms and non-traditional platform workers' unions. His work compares Denmark, France, Italy, and the Netherlands. He is also involved in projects about the discursive construction of digitalisation and the social policy attitudes of left-wing populism towards 'digital outsiders'.
Cutting-edge analysis showcasing the work of the political science discipline at its best.
