The Activist History Review invites proposals for our April 2019 issue, “Migrant: Unwaged Work in the U.S.”

Migrant workers have formed the backbone of American foodways for centuries. They pick our crops, process our food, and package it for our consumption. Despite the absolutely essential nature of their labor, they often work without benefits or protections while receiving scant pay. These poor working conditions subsidize the cost of our every meal, enabling employers to pay workers less while increasing their own profits.

Since the 1950s, historians have regarded the intersection of imperial rule and colonial infrastructure as the straightforward story of means that achieved goals. Studies in the wake of John Gallagher and Ronald Robinson’s work as well as the more technology-centered publications by Daniel Headrick have argued that railroads, alongside telegraph lines and steamships, were designed as instruments of imperial power.
