Conference: Fighting Inequality: Class, Race, and Power

[We have the following announcement.]

Fighting Inequality: Class, Race, and Power is a joint conference of the Labor and Working-Class History Association and the Working-Class Studies Association, hosted by Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor. The conference will be held from May 28-31, 2015, at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.

The Labor and Working-Class History Association is an organization of historians, labor educators, and working-class activists who seek to promote public and scholarly awareness of labor and working-class history through research, writing, and organizing.

The Working-Class Studies Association supports and promotes interdisciplinary and activist projects focused on working-class lives and culture. The WCSA publishes a semi-annual newsletter, holds annual conferences, sponsors an awards competition, and provides online resources.

Georgetown University’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor develops creative strategies and innovative public policy to improve workers’ lives in a changing economy. The Initiative draws on Georgetown’s distinctive identity—its commitment to intellectual excellence, grounding in the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, history of inter-religious cooperation, global reach, and prominence as an arena of policy debate in the nation’s capital—to advance prosperity, broadly-shared economic justice, and respect for the dignity of labor.
