Class, Social Movements, and the New Politics

CFP: NALHC, Detroit, October 2010

The Program Committee of the North American Labor History Conference (NALHC)invites proposals for sessions and papers on "Class, Social Movements and the New Politics" for our thirty-second annual meeting. Recent elections have shown the emergence of new political demographics and the increased influence of young voters, progressive voters and workers. New labor alliances have increasingly focused their energies on securing and promoting a fresh understanding of how politics can serve workers. This year's conference examines the intersection of politics and workers in order to understand how this relationship has developed. We welcome papers that examine this theme broadly: looking at the ways workers participate in politics, define political interests, create electoral alliances and understand their place in a political system.

The NALHC will be held October 21-23, 2010 at Wayne State University in Detroit.
