Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and the Massachusetts Historical Society

Tuesday, October 17, 2017, 5:30 PM
Location: Fay House, Radcliffe Institute, Cambridge, Massachusetts


Anne G. Balay, Haverford College; Aimee Loiselle, University of Connecticut; Traci L. Parker, UMass-Amherst
Panel Discussion: Gender, Sexuality, and the New Labor History
Moderator: Seth Rockman, Brown University

The “New Labor History” is highly gendered, global, and often situated in spaces that are transitory or obscured. This session will consider the new directions that the path-breaking work of these three scholars indicates: on female, trans, and intersex truck drivers and state surveillance (Balay), on Puerto Rican needleworkers and the global working class (Loiselle), and on African American women workers in the post-Civil Rights Era (Parker). Note: There are no pre-circulated essays for this session.

 At the end of each program, the organizers will offer light refreshments and time for informal networking.
