Overview

   This vital and engaging collection expands and builds upone Women's Studies Quarterly's groundbreaking 1995 volume, honored with an award from the Council of Editor's of Learned Journals. The poetry, testimony, analysis, history, and theory collected here, which includes works by Patti See and Janet Zandy, not only suggests connective threads for understanding working-class experiences and literatures but also explores intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and class. Such explorations are arranged around the issue's four themes: family, education, the workplace, and identity. From South African sexual relationships, to teaching Medieval studies to working-class students, to the politics of a deaf workers' publication, to poems written in prison, this issue testifies to the growing depth and scope of working-class studies. Essential reading for all interested in the field, this issue offers an anvaluable framework for discussing working-class literature, culture, and artistic production, while also attending to the material conditions of working class peoples' lives.
