“Reflections on Writing Working-Class and Labor History” 
Robert Korstad is Emeritus Professor of Public Policy and History at Duke University. He received his B.A. and PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From the collaborative Like A Family (1988), to his collaborative collection of oral histories of Jim Crow segregation in Remembering Jim Crow (2001), to his pathbreaking monograph Civil Rights Unionism (2003), to his co-authored history of the North Carolina Fund To Right These Wrongs (2010), to his most recent co-authored publication, Fragile Democracy (2020), Korstad’s scholarship has over the past three decades redefined and reenergized the field of labor and working-class history. He has won numerous awards and honors, helped co-found the Labor and Working-Class History Organization (LAWCHA), led the Southern Labor Studies Association (SLSA), and has engaged in activism and community engagement in contemporary social movements, connecting past and present struggles for justice. For this session of the seminar, Professor Korstad will answer questions as a means to reflect on his scholarship and the field of labor history.
