The National Domestic Workers Alliance and the Barnard Center for Research on Women invite you to join us for an October conference about research on and around the domestic work industry. We are all really excited about the stellar line-up of scholars and organizers who will discuss the formation and development of a field of scholarship around domestic work, inequalities of class, race, gender, and citizenship, migration and the transnational demand for labor, and the history and current strategies of organizing. Full conference information, including session topics and program, can be found here: http://bcrw.barnard.edu/event/justice-in-the-home-domestic-work-past-present-and-future/.
