The Carolina Seminar on Labor and Working-Class History provides a forum for discussion of scholarship that explores the history of working class people and their communities; the changing nature of work in relation to the economy and government policy; efforts to organize unions and other forms of working-class movements; and research that places class into conversation with race, gender, sexuality, and cultural formations. Our focus is on U.S. history, with particular attention to the American South, but we welcome papers on the Americas more generally as well as global aspects of working- class history.
