SOCY 70 American Labor Relations

This course examines the political, cultural, and economic sources of solidarity and mobilization among workers in the US from the late 19th century to the present.  Readings and discussion will focus on important historical developments among labor unions, from militant beginnings through an accommodationist phase after World War II and a deep decline, to recent attempts at revitalization.  Students will consider the impacts of labor movements on social inequality, politics and on a range of cross-cutting issues around gender, immigration and race.  We will conclude by examining the prospects for labor in light of the rapid and profound changes in the world of work and economic activity in the contemporary period.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
