Editors Susan Binnie, Eric Tucker and Barry Wright are planning the fifth volume of the Canadian State Trials series and invite expressions of interest and proposals for chapter contributions. Volume 5 will examine Canadian political trials, national security measures and related legal developments and proceedings for the period c.1939 to the 1980s or early 1990s. We seek scholarly studies that balance historical and legal analyses. Context for these studies may include a comparative perspective that refers to other jurisdictions. Collaborative work is welcome.

Each year, the Working-Class Studies Association (WCSA) issues a number of awards to recognize the best new work in the field of working-class studies. This year, they will be awarded in June 2018 at WCSA’s conference, hosted by the Center for the Study of Inequalities, Social Justice, and Policy at Stony Brook University. The review process is organized by the past-president of the WCSA, and submissions are judged by a panel of three readers for each of the categories of awards.
