MultiCultural Center Theater

At a time when China turns itself into a "world workshop," we see conflict between neo-liberal globalization and a new class of workers emerging along with global production. The widespread utilization of a dormitory labor regime as a specific technology of control ironically opens up a space for subversion and resistance.

Presented with theMultiCultural Center, the Women’s Center, Asian American Studies, East Asian Studies, New Racial Studies, Global Studies, Sociology, and the Center for Work, Labor and Democracy.
