The 10th annual Southern Labor Studies Association (SLSA) will be hosted at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this weekend! Dr. Erik Gellman of the History Department is hosting the conference and more than 150 people are registered for the three-day event. Panels will feature scholars, teachers, and activists and aims to educate people on the history of southern labor.
In an interview for the Daily Tarheel, Dr. Gellman said “I think this conference will be really worthwhile for anyone interested in questions of work and labor of economic justice, racial justice, because it will explore the past of the South and its history in terms of labor.”
Thanks to Dr. Gellman, Dr. Robert Korstad (Duke University), Dr. Bryant Simon (Temple University), and all the other organizers for their hard work bringing this conference together!
