Upcoming presentations

This week I'm at the Canadian Association for Work and Labour Studies (CAWLS) conference at the University of Calgary.  CAWLS is part of the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences. I'll be presenting (or co-presenting) four papers this week:

  • Wednesday, June 1, 1:30-3, Math Sciences 217: (with Jason Foster) Impact of Temporary Foreign Workers on Alberta construction employment patterns.
  • Thursday, June 1, 9-10:30, Math Sciences 319: (with Jason Foster) Move it along, nothing to see here: The construction of workplace injury in Canadian newspapers.
  • Thursday, June 1, 1:30-3, Math Sciences 211: Challenges of organizing Farm workers in Alberta (panel)
  • Thursday, June 1, 3:15-4:45, Math Sciences 211: Urban and industrial: The structural challenge of rural engagement by Alberta unions
I will be posting my presentations up over the next few days.

The rest of the conference looks good. There is also a book launch (i.e., free wine!) by AU Press on Wednesday (3:15-445) for Alberta Oil and the Decline of Democracy in Canada.
