Call for Papers, Presentations and Performances!

General Strike 1919-2019 – Radicalism, Repression, and Solidarity
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of a watershed year in American and Canadian labor history, especially in the West. The year was defined by the Seattle and Winnipeg General Strikes, the Centralia Massacre, and the wave of state sponsored repression of immigrant workers during the Palmer Raids. Reflecting on these events a century later encourages us to consider the significance of radicalism as well as ways that organized labor has both enforced and overcome racial and gendered barriers to solidarity. The Pacific Northwest Labor History Association seeks presentations performances, and papers that examine labor history of the past 100 years. For more information, please see the website posting for full CfP.

Proposals due by Jan. 7, 2019.
