Today's Labor History
Click here to check out this week's Labor History Today podcast. Professor Jim Gregory on his innovative project to map American social movements online. Georgetown labor history professor Joe McCartin joins hosts Chris Garlock and Elise Bryant on a show originally broadcast on Labor Day 2019 on WPFW 89.3FM. The project, Gregory says, “allows us to see where social movements were active and where not, helping us better understand patterns of influence and endurance.”
