First Annual UB Uppity Talk

UB English Professor Jim Holstun delivered a lecture titled “The Moral Economy of the UB Precariat in the Twenty-First Century”: a working homage to E. P. Thompson’s great essay, “The Moral Economy of the English Crowd in the Eighteenth Century,” first delivered at UB in 1964. Holstun helps us see what early modern bread riots can teach us about winning a living stipend and wage for UB TAs, RAs, and adjuncts.
