Sulzberger Parlor, 3rd Floor Barnard Hall

The history of domestic-worker organizing illustrates how they have mobilized to transform their working lives and, in the process, have built a movement with a distinctive approach to labor organizing. In this conversation, historians Elizabeth Hutchison (University of New Mexico) and Premilla Nadasen (Barnard College) explore the contours of this history in the United States and Chile, analyzing 
the changing labor relations 
of domestic service over the course of the 20th century, and linking questions about domestic workers’ employment, migration, family life, and political activity to broader class, political, and ethnic relations. This event is co- sponsored by the Barnard Forum on Migration.
