Description:   This roundtable panel discussion is one of several events in the 3-day 2009 Conference of the United Association for Labor Education - "Imagining Alternatives: The Challenge to Labor" (April 15-18, 2009).

About the Conference:   UALE, the United Association for Labor Education, is made up of university-based, union-based and community-based labor educators. Participants from all three of these groups will be presenting at our 2009 Conference. The conference will reflect the work of the different populations and contexts that these three kinds of labor educators work with. It will include research papers, case studies and theoretical materials; teaching demonstrations, examples of tools, performances, workshops, curriculum samples and strategy sessions. In addition, the Labor Studies Journal will be sponsoring their own special sessions within the conference
