Description

2019 Labor Studies Workshare Series
"Academia's Promise: Upward Mobility or Elite Revolving Door?" w/Mathieu Dubeau and Riddhi Mehta-Neugebauer, PhD Students, UW Political Science

Abstract: 
Universities market their social science graduate programs as pathways into the exclusive arena of Academia or high-paying policy or industry jobs. Yet these promises fail to trickle down to working-class students, further reinforcing the mythology of the American Dream. While there’s been much work done on the effects of socioeconomic status on undergraduates, this paper addresses the impacts of the compounding precarity it creates for those pursuing graduate studies.

About: The Labor Studies Workshare features UW faculty and graduate students presenting works-in-progress on labor-related topics for feedback from an interdisciplinary audience of labor scholars from across campus. Workshares are typically held over the lunch hour and attendees are invited to bring their lunches.

Workshare Format: Workshare papers are circulated to registered attendees a week in advance of the workshare. Participants are expected to have read the paper before the meeting and be prepared for a discussion. Registration required. To register, e-mail hbcls@uw.edu
