TITLE: International Labor and Working-Class History (ILWCH)

ISSUE TITLE: “Workers’ Education and the Global Labor Movement”, Fall 2016

ISSUE EDITORS: Michael Merrill and Susan J. Schurman 

LANGUAGE: English

Senior Editors’ Note:  “Workers’ education is the main theme of ILWCH 90. Education played a key role in the elaboration of the imagination, the discourses, and the claims that were the foundation of working-class politics. Yet, this vital dimension of the la- boring experience has been relatively neglected by historians.By assembling these diverse but related articles, Michael Merrill and Susan J. Schurman have revealed the central place of education in workers’ lives and expectations over the last two centuries.”

“The significance of the research presented in this issue is all the more important because, as the editors’ emphasize in their introduction, workers’ education is neglected today as trade unions grapple with shrinking re- sources and more immediately pressing imperatives in a rapidly neoliberalizing world in which workers’ rights and benefits come under constant attack”
