The September attack on the World Trade Center was,among other things, an unprecedented physical and social catastrophe for New York's working class. Over the next several years, municipal, state and national leaders are going to debate about policies for reviving the New York City economy, an economy dealt a body-blow by the events of September 11. International Labor and Working-Class History would like to contribute to this debate by examining the effects of September 11 on New York City workers and by placing this event in historical perspective. We are looking for short articles that discuss the effects of sudden acts of mass destruction on urban workers, the urban economy and urban politics as well as studies that will give some idea of the magnitude of the damage inflicted on NYC's working-class economy and the social fabric of working-class life.
We are looking for shorter rather than longer pieces (2,000-3,000 words, A paragraph abstract should be submitted to our office by January 1. Final versions will be due on January 31, 2002.
