University of Iowa professors John McKerley, Shel Stromquist, and Eric Fure-Slocum will read from Civic Labors: Scholar Activism and Working-Class Studies. The essays in this collection examine the challenges and opportunities for engaged scholarship in the United States and abroad. A diverse roster of contributors discuss how participation in current labor and social struggles guides their campus and community organizing, public history initiatives, teaching, mentoring, and other activities. “. . . in this one volume we find a true community of scholars who seek to understand and change the world.”—Michael Honey
