International Conference: A Century+ of May Days: Labour and Social Struggles

Spectrezine's friends at the Institute for Working Class History in Chicago are organising a conference at DePaul University, Chicago during May Day weekend 2010 on the subject of more than a century of May Days. The purpose is to enable discussion, debate and analysis of labour and social struggles both past and present. Conference organiser Dr Bill Peltz says "We hope to cover an array of important historical and political topics. In addition to purely academic pursuits, conference participants will have the opportunity to participate in the May Day rally organized by the Chicago Federation of Labor and the Illinois Labor History Society." Bill is looking for papers as well as  workshop and panel proposals. Details
