Annual Meeting of the Working-Class Studies Association: 

Class at the Border: Migration, Confinement, and (Im)mobility

The Working-Class Studies Association will meet at Stony Brook's Student Activities Center for its 2018 Annual Conference, June 6-9, 2018, with above theme, as it has done for the past decade.  The Center for the Study of Inequalities, Social Justice, and Policy will be hosting.  Against the backdrop of globalization, where capital flows across borders more easily than people, we are living in increasingly walled-off societies. This conference, featuring interdisciplinary scholars from around the world as well as artists, writers, and activists, will explore how explicit recognition and analysis of class can deepen our understanding of the structures and ideas that divide individuals, communities, societies, and nations across the globe.  

The conference includes a plenary panel on "THE NATION Presents: The Future of Labor," another plenary  talk by distinguished historian Rhonda Williams on "The Things That Divide Us: Meditations," (both open to the public) and 37 other panels.  For program, registration, and other information, see  https://wcstudies2018conference.wordpress.com/
