Made in China: Women Factory Workers in a Global Workplace
Pun Ngai, Founder of the Chinese Working Women's Network and Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
Wednesday, May 23, 2007
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.
