"Work Matters": 28th Annual International Labour Process Conference
Rutgers University, March 15-17, 2010
  After short and successful trips to Amsterdam and Dublin in recent
years, its 28th year sees the International Labour Process Conference
making a bigger journey, with the event hosted for the first time in
North America. It will be organised at Rutgers by an experienced team
at one of the leading labour studies departments in the country.
Located in New Jersey, Rutgers is close to New York (and particularly
Newark Airport) and should prove an attractive destination for
traditional ILPC attendees. With exciting new streams and issues,
the 2010 event provides a great opportunity for diverse groups of
labour-oriented workplace researchers from different continents to
communicate and collaborate. We urge you all to attend and support
the conference.

The ILPC web site now has all the information about additional
special streams for the 2010 event, as well as the call for papers
and papers from the 28th conference. www.ilpc.org.uk
