Social Class


Dear Friends and Colleagues 

I am happy to report that the full schedule for the How Class Works – 2010 conference is now posted at 

together with registration and housing information.  The conference will be at SUNY Stony Brook June 3-5, 2010. 

The conference includes over 200 presentations exploring the many ways in which class dynamics shape our social, cultural, and political experiences.  It brings together graduate students and senior scholars, labor and community organizers and activists, to extend the knowledge and community of working class studies. 

Presenters are coming from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iran, New Zealand, Portugal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sweden, Turkey, the UK, and the US.   

The opening plenary session will feature Larry Cohen, international president of Communications Workers of America: “Economic Crisis, Political Paralysis:  What’s the Working Class to Do?” Thursday June 3 at 7 p.m.  Other plenary sessions will address right wing populism, charter schools, and contingent academic labor. 

I invite you to check out the program and register for the conference.  Limited financial aid is available.  I hope to welcome you to Stony Brook in June. 

with best wishes
