Scratching Out a Living: Activist Research for Immigrant Worker Justice

220 Eggers Hall, Strasser Legacy Room

Add to: Outlook, ICal, Google Calendar

Angela Stuesse, author of Scratching Out a Living: Latinos, Race, and Work in the Deep South, will be the Keynote Speaker at the Labor Studies Working Group Tenth Decade Project Graduate Research Symposium.

The Work, Labor, and Citizenship Initiative nurtures interdisciplinary study of the many fundamental trends now at play in the broad field of labor studies. Over the past four decades, the world has experienced a precipitous increase in income inequality, fueled in part by the global restructuring of labor markets and the collapse of organized labor. At the same time, rights and entitlements traditionally associated with employment have been undermined by a shifting worker/employer power balance, with effects on job security, benefits, pensions, and wages. Across the globe, labor markets are characterized by mass unemployment, disruptive migration, and a burgeoning informal sector. These trends have direct implications for political participation and workers’ sense of of their own citizenship. This workshop will explore the shifting terrain of work and labor and its implications for citizenship.
