      Subject: CFP: Southern Labor Studies Conference

      SEPTEMBER 30-OCTOBER 2, 1999

      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;
      a one-page abstract of each presentation; and a short c.v. for each
      participant. Individual proposals should include a title, one-page
      abstract of the presentation, and a short c.v. PROPOSALS MUST BE
      SUBMITTED BY MARCH 15, 1999!!!
