Re-energizing CommunitiesCanadian Association for Work and Labor Studies Conference

June 1-2, 2016
Calgary, Canada

The conference organizing committee invites submissions for participation in the 3rd annual conference of the Canadian Association of Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS). The committee welcomes proposals for single papers, multiple paper panels, roundtables and/or workshops. The participation of researchers in union and community settings is encouraged. CFP Deadline: December 1, 2015.

The Congress theme, “Energizing Communities” seeks to engage our collective interest in how communities are organized, how they respond to social change and how we build alliances with like-minded groups. In both the developed and developing worlds, “energizing communities” includes examining workers in the commodity sectors, the role of the environment within the class struggle, and how labour builds alliances with other groups, including Indigenous communities.
