This conference will bring together large groups of researchers from the USA, China, and Canada, as well as scholars from 12 other countries, to present research on a wide range of topics related to precarious work. Plenary sessions will feature local Seattle activists as well as globally noted scholars.
The registration page is also set up, and I urge you to register as soon as you can (there is no cost for registration, but space is limited): http://www.irle.ucla.edu/events/2014/PrecariousWorkRegistration.php . And, please share the word with your colleagues who are interested in this topic.
The conference will take place on Friday, August 19, 2016, at Seattle Central College in Seattle, Washington, from 9am-6pm (just before the beginning of the American Sociological Association meetings, which will be taking place nearby in downtown Seattle. We hope that you can plan to be present for the full conference, which will bring together a remarkable set of distinct, yet related discussions on precarious work.
