Abstract [en]

This paper is a unique roundtable discussion between geographers to explore, contextualize and problematize the role of geography in the gig economy. It brings together eight researchers from across Europe all working with qualitative methods and studying the gig economy. Based on reflections and commentaries regarding the spatialities and temporalities in and of the gig economy, we offer an innovative approach to exploring complicated factors in an emerging and rapidly growing field. We highlight the multiple layers of geography in physical and digital spaces and the, sometimes blurry, interactions between these. We also show how temporalities shape the geographies of the gig economy. This paper contributes to developing, deepening and advancing theoretical challenges in understanding the gig economy. It also brings these challenges into an accessible, yet thorough publication that can be used in teaching about the gig economy and digital geography. We provide a pedagogical tool to support university teachers in using this document in their courses.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport är en unik rundabordsdiskussion mellan geografer för att utforska, kontextualisera och problematisera geografins roll i gigekonomin. Detta samlar åtta forskare från olika kontexter i Europa som alla arbetar med kvalitativa metoder och forskar om gigekonomin. Baserat på reflektioner och kommentarer om rumsligheten och temporaliteterna i och av gigekonomin erbjuder vi ett innovativt tillvägagångssätt för att undersöka komplicerade faktorer i ett fält som växer och förändras snabbt. Vi lyfter fram flera aspekter av geografi i fysiska och digitala rum och platser och de, ibland luddiga, interaktionerna mellan dessaaspekter. Vi visar också hur temporaliteter formar gigekonomins geografier. Denna rapport bidrar till att utveckla, fördjupa och främja teoretiska utmaningar för att förstå gigekonomin. Det för också dessa utmaningar till en tillgänglig men ändå grundlig publikation som kan användas i undervisningen om gigekonomin och digital geografi. Vi inkluderar ett pedagogiskt verktyg för att stödja universitetslärare att använda detta dokument i sina kurser.
