Congratulations to WCSA’s 2019 Young Scholars and Activists Fellowship Recipients!

Congratulations to the recipients of the Working-Class Studies Association’s Young Scholars and Activists Fellowship award!

Each of the recipients are working in ways that contribute to working-class studies, and we were excited to welcome several of the recipients at the 2019 conference at the University of Kent.

The recipients were:

Jay Emery, School of Geography, Geology, and the Environment, University of Leicester, England

Frederick Burrill, Department of History, Concordia University, Canada

Mary Gibaldi, Department of English, California State University, Chico, United States

Luka Lei Zhang, English Division, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Courtney Pina Miller, Department of English, Brandeis University, United States
