Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

In this class, we will compare case studies of labor union and other worker-led campaigns based on old and new forms of solidarity, both within countries and transnationally. Each week, we will discuss a different case study through presentations by labor and community organizers and researchers. Students will produce a website with case descriptions, interview transcripts, and other resources. Past case studies include the Volkswagen and Bank Workers campaigns in the US, international organizing at RyanAir and Amazon in Europe, migrant worker organizing at the Shelter for Foreign workers initiative in South Korea, and collective action by app-based workers in Argentina.

When Offered Spring.
