Taught By: Rachel Sherman

Section: A

CRN: 6080

Credits: 3

This course will look at various forms of workers' participation in politics, broadly defined, with a particular focus on social movements. Topics include macro-level political-economic arrangements that have shaped and been shaped by workers' movements; relationships among employers, workers, and the state; labor organizations and labor movements; social class and electoral politics; and workers' political subjectivities. Throughout, we will discuss the relationship of race and gender to work and class. Our primary focus will be the U.S. since the late 19th century, but we will draw on cases from a range of other countries as well.
