D.C. Working-Class History Seminar

Held twice per semester on the George Washington University campus, the D.C. Working-Class History Seminar is a forum for discussing works of labor and working-class studies in progress. Before each meeting, the organizers pre-circulate two unpublished papers, 25-30 pages in length. The attendees, who are mostly graduate students and faculty, then discuss the papers with their authors.

Founded by Jennifer Luff (Durham University) and Cindy Hahamovitch, the seminar series is now organized by Cindy Hahamovitch (William and Mary) and Eric Arnesen (George Washington University).

The seminar meets from 2:00-5:00 p.m. on four to five Saturdays a year at the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Labor History Research Center, at George Washington University’s Gelman Library.
