DescriptionThis one day conference brought together more than 20 researchers and 60 attendees to discuss ethnographic research on various aspects of collaborative economy. I was the Host Organiser and Conference Chair. The papers were published in the Conference Proceedings including an introduction by the two organisers: Penny Travlou and Luigina Ciolfi (Sheffield Hallam University).
The conference was supported by the COST Action “From Sharing to Caring: Examining the Socio-Technical Aspects of the Collaborative Economy” (CA16121, 2017-2021), developing a network of actors focusing on the development of collaborative economy models and platforms and on social and technological implications of the collaborative economy through a practice focused approach.
The conference aligns with the COST Action’s Working Group 1 activities to bring together different ethnographic case studies on collaborative economy with the aim to a) build a basis for developing a multi-faceted view on sharing and caring practices and b) develop a theoretical framework to interpret and classify the different cases.
