From nightly sing-a-longs to a full performance by punk rock band, Graduates Rise, the WCSA honors the struggle for justice through music.
Scott Henkel, WCSA Steering Committee member, has won an Extraordinary Merit in Research Award from the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Wyoming.
The nominations process is now open for the WCSA elections in June. There will be blast-email calls for nominations in April and May, but it is not too early to submit nominations, including self-nominations. Simply email your nominee to Elections Committee Chair Lisa Kirby at LKirby@collin.edu. If you are nominating somebody besides yourself, please seek their permission before nominating and simply copy them on your email nomination to Lisa. No biographical rationale is necessary at this point.
The open positions for 2017-18 are: President-Elect, Treasurer, Secretary, two at-large members of the Steering Committee (one graduate student and one independent scholar), and one member of the Elections Committee. In addition, former members of the Association of Working-Class Academics need to nominate and elect a Chair-Elect for the new WCSA Working-Class Academics Section.
The Call for Papers for the Working Class Studies Association’s 2017 conference at Indiana University, Bloomington from May 31 – June 3, 2017 has been extended to Feb. 20.
