SLSA Announces Robert H. Zieger Prize in Southern Labor Studies

zieger3In honor of the late Robert H. Zieger–teacher, scholar, and tireless union activist–the Southern Labor Studies Association announces that it is raising funds for the Robert H. Zieger Prize for Southern Labor Studies. This prize will be awarded every two years to the best unpublished article in southern labor studies submitted by a graduate
student or early career scholar, journalist, or activist (“early career” being defined as no more than five years beyond the author’s highest degree).

SLSA’s goal is to raise $13,000, which would allow the organization to draw down $500 every two years. Please give generously. To make a tax-deductible contribution, please send a check made out to the “Southern Labor
Studies Association” and mail it to:
