History@Work is an occasional series inviting scholars, writers, advocates, and activists to address compelling contemporary labor questions within historical context.

On October 7, 2020, we celebrated the 30th anniversary of Feminism in the Labor Movement, Nancy Gabin's pioneering work on the fight for gender equality in the United Automobile Workers. Pam Butler, Associate Director of the Gender Studies Program,  interviewed Gabin, Associate Professor of History at Purdue University, about her book's contributions to the fields of labor, women's, and gender history, as well those fields intertwining paths over the past three decades. Gabin also met separately with undergraduates interested in research, history, feminism, and labor's future. The events were cosponsored by the Gender Studies Program.

Stay tuned for news of upcoming events in the History@Work series, which shall resume in spring semester 2021. In the meantime, check out our archive of prior speakers.
