Canadian Association of Work and Labour Studies


3rd Annual Conference: 

Re-energizing Communities: Building Worker Solidarity and Social Justice

University of Calgary
June 1-2, 2016
As part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences

The Congress theme, “Energizing Communities” seeks to engage our collective interest in how communities are organized, how they respond to social change and how we build alliances with like-minded groups. In both the developed and developing worlds, “energizing communities” includes examining workers in the commodity sectors, the role of the environment within the class struggle, and how labour builds alliances with other groups, including Indigenous communities.
