Center for Working-Class Studies
The Center for Working-Class Studies (CWCS) at Youngstown State University (YSU) was the first academic program in the U.S. to focus on issues of work and class. CWCS members have been at the forefront of “new working-class studies,” an international movement that brings together academics, artists, activists, students, and others who are interested in the history, experiences, stories, and politics of the working class.
