GOVT 4012

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course examines working class politics in the United States, as it has developed historically and as it exists today, including the ideas and institutions of industrial democracy, the participatory and civic influence of union, contemporary alt-labor politics, and more. Integrated throughout the course is an attention to the complex and contradictory history of racial politics inside and outside the labor movement and broader working class, as well as gendered constructions of 'labor' in cultural forms and legal and workplace institutions. The course material is rooted in the discipline of political science, but draws extensively on history and law as well.
