Our Daily Work/Our Daily Lives Brown Bag Series

This week’s presentation titled, “A Bigger Bite of the Apple: Social Movements, Immigrants, and Labor in Washington State,” is presented by Jerry Garcia, Ethnic Studies Program, Northern Arizona University (co-sponsored by the MSU Chicano Latino Studies Program and the MSU Julian Samora Research Institute).

“Our Daily Work / Our Daily Lives” is a joint project that focuses on the artistic traditions of workers and on workplaces as contexts for the expression of workers culture. The richness and diversity of workers’ experiences and workers culture is explored and presented through an ongoing series of exhibits, lectures, and presentations; writing and research projects; reunions; and demonstrations and discussions. The program was established in 1992 and is coordinated by the Michigan Traditional Arts Program at the MSU Museum and the Labor Education Program in the College of Social Science’s School of Human Resources and Labor Relations.
