The Labor and Working Class History Association's 2017 annual conference will be held June 23-25, 2017 at the University of Washington, Seattle. The theme for the 2017 LAWCHA conference is: "Scales of Struggle: Communities, Movements, and Global Connections.” The program committee wants to create space and opportunities for a wide range of scholars, teachers and activists engaged in labor and working-class history, broadly defined.
In addition to more traditional conference panels, LAWCHA’s program committee envisions a variety of types of sessions, including book sessions, workshops, roundtables, performances, and exhibits that connect scholars, activists, teachers and labor educators who share interests in historical and contemporary struggles, whether local or transnational.
The Call for Proposals is posted at: http://lawcha.org/wordpress/annualmeeting/seattle-washington-2017/lawcha-2017-conference-call-papers/.
The deadline for session and paper proposals is currently set at September 15, 2016, but is likely to be extended.
The University of Washington conference site will have affordable housing options.
