Join us at the epicenter of the “Wisconsin Uprising” for the Working Class Studies Association’s Fighting Forward!-- A Labor and Working Class Studies Summit, a gathering of working people, community and labor activists, students and educators focused on building a revitalized movement in support of labor and the working class, June 12-15, 2013, Madison College - Downtown Campus, Madison, Wisconsin.
Since the start of the Uprising, we have witnessed an historic response by working people to the decades-long assault on our rights and livelihoods. Now is the time to reflect, strategize, and build connections, as we not only continue to fight back against this assault but also move forward in building a better future for labor and working class people. It is time for Fighting Forward!
The Program Committee welcomes proposals on topics addressing the wide range of social, economic, political, and organizational challenges confronting working-class people. Presenters are encouraged to use styles of presentation that promote the participation of attendees, emphasize problem-solving, and view both problems and solutions within a broader social, economic and political context.
Against this background, we encourage the wide diversity of topics, themes, presentations, and panels that have characterized previous Working-Class Studies conferences.
The Summit will provide an opportunity to celebrate, educate, strategize, share experiences and best practices, and build connections and relationships. The program will incorporate a broad array of activities, including workshops, panels, training sessions, roundtables, cultural exhibitions and performances, strategy sessions, tabling and exhibits, and social activities aimed at building and strengthening connections among participants.
