The global Covid-19 pandemic has brought working-class issues back to the front page, as researchers, journalists, activists, and workers debate workplace safety for frontline employees, the tattered social safety net, wages, child care, and a whole host of issues affecting working-class people around the globe. In fact, the crisis has afforded the opportunity to question the very essence of work, labor, wages, and working conditions.
At the Working-Class Studies Association, we take these issues very seriously. Our annual conference, which will take place (mostly) virtually from June 7 through June 10, 2021, is an ideal place to learn, discuss, debate, and examine these issues, and much, much more. The conference, which kicks off at 10AM on June 7, features over 50 panels, roundtables, presentations, plenary talks, and performances by over 150 academics, activists, researchers, and performers from across the globe. Registration is only $25.00, and you get access to all events and presentations. So join us and explore topics from working-class literature to the history of social movements to the sociology of class.
The full program is available on our website. We hope to see you there!
