2014 How Class Works Conference Collection home page

The Center for Study of Working Class Life is dedicated to exploring the meaning of class in today’s world. Looking at society through the lens of class clarifies many important social questions in new ways – why the rich get richer while the poor get poorer, what attacks on government programs through privatization mean, why the suburbs aren’t really a middle class haven, how the "family values" debate impacts our lives, and much more. We are an interdisciplinary effort of faculty and staff at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, founded in November, 1999. The Center studies class mainly with tools of the social sciences, but we also pay attention to the arts. Through our gallery and tv/video pages, we highlight the work of artists who convey the many faces and circumstances of working people today. Our affiliated faculty and staff address a wide range of issues, in their own work and through various programs in the Center’s calendar. The Center encourages an approach that recognizes the close connections between class and race, gender, and nationality. We investigate the meaning of class in the international economy. The interactions among these elements are a central consideration of Center programs. Over the past thirty years, we in the United States have made important progress on issues of race and gender, both intellectually and in our lives, although much remains to be accomplished. Think what the world would be like if we made that kind of progress on issues of class in the next thirty years! The Center for Study of Working Class Life is dedicated to helping that process along.
