Welcome to the Texas Center for Working-Class Studies Conference. Our mission is to raise awareness about issues related to social class, work, and the working class and to provide opportunities for collaboration among faculty, students, and community members.

Please save the date for our upcoming conference: Thursday, February 28, 2019

The keynote speaker will be noted scholar Dr. Jacqueline Jones, Professor and Chair of the History Department at The University of Texas at Austin, and author of A Dreadful Deceit: The Myth of Race from the Colonial Era to Obama’s America, Labor of Love, Labor of Sorrow: Black Women, Work and the Family from Slavery to the Present, and Goddess of Anarchy: The Life and Times of Lucy Parsons, American Radical.
