Re: EXTENDED DEADLINE, Seeking Panelists: Multiple Topics, Social Science History Association Meeting November 8-11, 2018

Does it have to be a "paper" on New Frontiers in Labor Organizing? I have a new book out, Don't Trump on Us: Making Our Unions Great Again that covers this topic in the "adverse" climate.

Artisanal Deskilling, Labor, and Gender: Looking for fellow panelists: SHOT 2018 meeting

I am interested in organizing a session at SHOT for 2018 looking at changes in the acquisition of artisanal skills and the use of technology for non-professional users. The submission date for a full panel is March 31st. While the story of the deskilling labor is best known for men on the factory floor, my paper looks at home sewing as one of 20th Century American women’s most common encounters with artisanal labor and technology.
