Working Class Studies Association conference

Graduates Rise has a peer-reviewed punk record!!!

We will perform our record Math is Hard! at this year's Working Class Studies Association Academic Conference!!!

“Class Struggle: Race, Gender, and Revolution” The Working Class Studies Association annual conference for 2017 is dedicated to investigating the myriad ways in which the working classes can fight for emancipation. We seek proposals that offer creative interrogations of the very concepts of “working class” and “class struggle” in today’s moment of global capitalism and the consequent disarticulation of traditional notions of the working class. What does working class mean in an era of deindustrialization, precarious work, and predatory capital mobility? What new sites of working-class struggle can come to the fore with the weakening of trade unions and the erosion of the shop-floor and public space as places of working-class organization and contestation? 

Graduates Rise is slated to perform on June 2, 2017 at 5:15 pm in the Wright Auditorium Building.
