Revisiting Ludlow: 1914/2014

Friday, October 3, 2014, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow massacre, one of the most violent conflicts in American labor history. A politicized site of memory, Ludlow brings attention to immigrant subjectivities, working class consciousness and interethnic solidarity, while it generates interest in its resonance for the contemporary labor movement. To honor this special anniversary, the Center for Modern Greek Studies furthers the conversation about the scholarly and political significance of this seminal event. The aim is to promote cross-fertilization across genres and disciplines to further understanding of Ludlow in relation to material culture, ethnicity, transnationalism, usable pasts, women's activism, academic politics and the intersections of historical facts and fiction. Free.
