  • Gender relations at work and in labour movements
  • Revitalization of workers’ movements
  • Work and popular culture
  • Labour, colonialism, and decolonization
  • Work, labour movements, and the environment

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 Graduate Symposium Proceedings.

Deadline for Submissions | July 21, 2017

– Title and a 150-word abstract of the proposed presentation; and
