The Global Labour Research Centre is hosting its second annual Graduate Student Symposium, to be held at York University on October 27-28, 2016. The symposium will showcase research by emerging scholars on a wide range of issues related to the study of work and labour in a global context, and will offer a interdisciplinary forum for graduate students and post-doctoral fellows to share their research in a collaborative environment.

The director, Min Sook Lee, will participate in a panel discussion about the film during the symposium.
