Insurgency & Resistance

Throughout history, workers have engaged in insurgency and resistance from factories to fields, from plantations to plants, from mines to mills, and in cities and in the countryside. Power and authority have been contested on a variety of terrains, both inside and outside of traditional labor structures. More recently, conflicts have erupted in Latin America, the Arab world, southern Europe, China, and across North America. This interdisciplinary conference will explore a broad range of themes under the topic of "insurgency and resistance" through keynote addresses, book talks, panels, roundtables, and other events.
