Making of the Atlantic Working Classes

CFP: SLSC conference

XIIth Bi-Annual Southern Labor Studies Conference
The Making of the Atlantic Working Classes
Miami Beach, Florida
April 26-28, 2002

Call for Papers

In conjunction with the programs in Atlantic Civilization, African-New World Studies, and the Center for Labor Research and Studies at Florida International University, the Southern Labor Studies Conference invites paper submissions for its bi-annual conference. As in the past, we welcome submissions on southern labor history, politics, and contemporary affairs, but the program committee is especially interested in papers and panels that speak to the theme of international working-class history in the Atlantic world, broadly defined. Drawing on U.S., Canadian, European, Caribbean, Latin American, or African history this might include work on labor migration, comparative labor history, slavery and emancipation, transnational labor movements and/or international solidarity, labor and international trade and commerce, or labor and foreign policy in the Americas. The keynote address will be given by Marcus Rediker, co-author of The Many-Headed Hydra: Sailors, Slaves, Commoners, and the Hidden History of the Revolutionary Atlantic, and pioneer in the field of Atlantic working-class studies.

Please submit proposals for panels (2-3 papers and a commentator) or individual papers by December 15, 2001 to:
