Event Details

The public conference begins the evening of Thursday 10/16 at 6:30pm and will run all day on Friday 10/17. There is an optional Saturday working groups session. Full program available here.

Domestic work and domestic worker organizing have been subjects of discussion at a range of academic conferences, including conferences devoted to labor history, sociology, and gender studies. This research conference on domestic workers and domestic worker organizing will provide the setting for a more intensive and comprehensive look at key issues related to domestic work by bringing together scholars from diverse areas of interest and expertise. We will create the opportunity for frank assessments about the status of academic research about domestic work, workers and organizing: major scholarly accomplishments, critical areas of debate or contention, as well as un- or under-explored issues. Join us for this historic set of conversations.

For more details on the National Domestic Workers Alliance, see their website.
