Class, Social Movements and the New Politics
Thirty-Second Annual North American Labor History Conference
Wayne State University, October 21-23, 2010.
The Program Committee of the North American Labor History Conference invites proposals for sessions and papers on “Class, Social Movements and the New Politics” for our thirty-second annual meeting.
Recent elections have shown the emergence of new political demographics and the increased influence of young voters, progressive voters and workers. New labor alliances have increasingly focused their energies on securing and promoting a fresh understanding of how politics can serve workers. This year’s conference examines the intersection of politics and workers in order to understand how this relationship has developed. We welcome papers that examine this theme broadly: looking at the ways workers participate in politics, define political interests, create electoral alliances and understand their place in a political system.
Please submit panel and paper proposals (including 1-2 page abstracts and brief vitas or biographical statements for all participants) by March 15, 2010 to:
