Register now for mini-conference on “Precarious Work: Domination and Resistance in the US, China, and the World,” in Seattle   

The deadline is approaching! We invite you to register by FRIDAY, AUGUST 5, for our conference on “Precarious Work: Domination and Resistance in the US, China, and the World,” to take place on August 19, 2016 in Seattle, Washington. The conference will bring together large groups of researchers from the USA, China, and Canada, as well as scholars from 12 other countries, to present research on a wide range of topics related to precarious work.  Plenary sessions will feature local Seattle activists as well as globally noted scholars.

The complete program is online at http://irle.ucla.edu/events/PrecariousWork.php. You can also register at: http://www.irle.ucla.edu/events/2014/PrecariousWorkRegistration.php, and the deadline is FRIDAY, AUGUST 5. The conference is free to all, but there is a small charge if you wish to receive a box lunch.

The conference will take place Friday, August 19, 2016, at the Broadway Performance Hall, Seattle Central College, in downtown Seattle, Washington, from 9am-6pm, followed by a gala reception in the same location hosted by the ASA section on Labor and Labor Movements. We hope you can plan to be present for the full conference, which will bring together a remarkable set of discussions on precarious work, and stay to enjoy our hospitality after. Please also forward this message to any and all persons you think might be interested. See http://irle.ucla.edu/events/PrecariousWork.php for additional information.
