I am writing to inform you of an exciting intellectual project. In Chicago during May Day weekend 2010, there will be a conference to discuss, debate and analyze labor and social struggles B both past and present. If you would like to have your name listed as a participant in this conference, let us know. Moreover, if you have the time we would ask that you join the organizing committee. The conference is tentatively entitled: A Century+ of May Days: Labor and Social Struggles - an International Conference.
We hope to cover an array of important historical and political topics. Members of the organizing committee will be asked to organize a panel or workshop on a relevant topic. In addition to purely academic pursuits, conference participants will have the opportunity to participate in the May Day rally organized by the Chicago Federation of Labor and the Illinois Labor History Society. If there is sufficient interest, we will set up a Chicago labor history tour.
Please let us know, if possible by September 7th, if you will participate and if we can include you on the organizing committee. Please indicate the name and institutional affiliation you would like listed on promotional material. You can fill out the section below and send it by return e-mail or post.
We hope you are having an enjoyable and productive summer.
All the best,
Bill (for the organizing committee)
