Sage Critical Sociology Labor Scholars Series

Podcasts from Sage's Critical Sociology Labor Scholars Series

The line between history and sociology becomes obscure in the field of the sociology of work. Important sociology is being generated in history departments even as sociologists return to their discipline’s roots in historical inquiry. This podcast series contributes to and enriches this conversation between sociology and labor history. Each podcast concentrates upon a particular set of historical issues with contemporary relevance for sociologists.
