CALL FOR PAPERS
SOUTHERN LABOR STUDIES BIANNUAL MEETING
GEORGIA STATE UNIVERSITY, ATLANTA, GA
SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 2, 1999
"THE POLITICS OF LABOR"
The Southern Labor Studies Conference program committee invites
proposals for papers and presentations for the 1999 biannual meeting to
be held September 30 to October 2 at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
The theme of the meeting is "The Politics of Labor: Labor, Culture,
Society, and the State." The committee invites both proposals on
traditional electoral politics and proposals which define politics
broadly to include such topics as political culture, political economy,
organizaing, public policy, labor's relationship to the state and
society, internal union politics, the politics of gender, racial
politics, and other labor topics with political themes. Although
conference presentations focus on the history of the southern United
States, the committee also welcomes papers on other topics such as
international and comparative labor studies or proposals for
presentations on labor education and pedagogy.
The Southern Labor Studies Conference has traditionally combined the
efforts of scholars, archivists, activists, and community members
interested in labor studies. The committee welcomes proposals from
scholars and activists from all disciplines and settings, including
colleges and universities, museums, historical socieities, archives,
libraries, and the labor movement. We encourage graduate studentsl,
independent researchers, and activist and community members to submit
proposals, and welcome both traditional academic panels and papers, as
well as proposals for roundtables, audio and visual presentations, and
other informal sessions.
Applicants must submit three (3) copies of the following: for full
session proposals, a one-page cover sheet, including the title of the
panel, the names of panel participants, suggested commentator(s), and a
brief description of the issues and questions the session will address;

participant. Individual proposals should include a title, one-page
abstract of the presentation, and a short c.v. PROPOSALS MUST BE
