Syllabus Description:

This course explores the conceptual and theoretical issues in the study of labor and work. Specifically, we consider the role of labor in national politics.  We take both a normative perspective on labor as well as explore implications for labor-based social movements.  The historical and contemporary role of labor in the modern world is also interrogated.  The goal is for students to question the concept of work through an exploration of movements driven by our relationship to labor.
