15th Biennial Labour History Conference: ‘Workers of the World’

23 September 2017 @ 8.00 am - 25 September 2017 @ 5.00 pm

Today, the Australian working class are workers of the world: in the sense that we are a predominantly immigrant working class (or the descendants of relatively recent immigrants); and in the sense that workers from so many of the world’s nations, languages and cultures have made their homes here. The year 2017 also marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, which had such a profound impact on the labour movement in every country, not least as a result of its internationalism. This conference focuses on both these elements and more.
