The Harry Bridges Center for Labor Studies is proud to announce the full calendar of Labor Studies Workshares for the 2019-2020 academic year. Ten UW faculty and graduate students will present works in progress on topics related to labor, broadly conceived to include working people everywhere.
Dates and participants are listed below. We hope you will plan to join us for one or more workshares. Workshare papers are circulated to registered attendees a week in advance of the workshare. Participants are expected to have read the paper before the meeting and be prepared for a discussion.
To register for a specific workshare, please e-mail the Bridges Center at firstname.lastname@example.org .
