Book Talk: Paul Apostolidis presents "The Fight for Time: Migrant Day Laborers and the Politics of Precarity"

Event Date: 
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 -
12:30pm to 2:00pm
Event Location: 
CSRC Library - 144 Haines Hall

In The Fight for Time (Oxford University Press, 2019), Paul Apostolidis explores the experiences of migrant day laborers and how their struggles in desperate circumstances reflect an increasingly precarious working world for all. Apostolidis will discuss the meaning of “precarity” and the kinds of organizations that attempt to improve the lives of all working people. Apostolidis currently teaches at Whitman College. In June, he will begin a faculty appointment at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

This event is organized by the UCLA Institute for Research on Labor and Employment and co-sponsored by the CSRC.
