Race and Worker Justice: A Conversation with Angela Stuesse

  • Loyola University Chicago 6349 N Kenmore Chicago, Illinois

Based on six years of research and collaboration with a poultry workers’ center in Mississippi, anthropologist Angela Stuesse will discuss connections between racial inequality, corporations'  drive to lower labor costs, and immigrants’ contested place in contemporary social relations. In dialogue with Loyola student activists, she will also share her thoughts on workers’ prospects for political mobilization, arguing for organizing strategies that bring diverse working communities together in mutual construction of a more just future.
