The Global Labour Research Centre at York University invites proposals for presentations at its upcoming second annual graduate symposium, which will take place on October 27-28, 2016. To encourage the formation of the broadest intellectual community, we invite proposals on a wide range of issues related, but not limited, to the areas of:

  • work, employment, and labour rights
  • migration, citizenship, and work
  • inequality, work, and labour markets
  • gender relations at work and in labour movements
  • revitalization of workers’ movements
  • work and popular culture
  • labour, colonialism, and decolonization

The symposium is designed to provide an interdisciplinary venue for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to share their research ideas in a collaborative and supportive environment. Submissions may include dissertation proposals or chapters, major research papers, or course papers. Participants are encouraged to present on works in progress. In addition, symposium participants will be encouraged to submit their papers for consideration for publication in the GLRC’s Working Paper Series.
