Upcoming Events #WorkerEdWednesday

Hey folks!

Check out some of the latest Zoom-erific events happening in October and November. This pandemic won’t keep UALE folks from educating.

There are several other speakers in this online series on “Understanding a World in Crisis and Building an Alternative.”  For more information, visit the Havens Wright Center website. And thanks to Don Taylor for sharing this with us!

Established in the Sociology Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1984, the Havens Wright Center for Social Justice is dedicated to promoting critical intellectual reflection and exchange, both within the academy as well as between it and the broader society. The Center is named in honor of the late Professors of Rural Sociology and Sociology, A. Eugene Havens and Erik Olin Wright, whose life and work embodied the combination of progressive social and political commitment and scholarly rigor that the Center encourages.
