Mainstream Radicalism: Labor Organizing in Schenectady 1886-1906

This in-person program is part of our Winter Speaker Series, and will be presented at Mabee Farm.  Historian Catherine Haag's 2023 dissertation explores the confluence of Schenectady's Socialist history,  local workers’ adoption of direct labor action practices at the point of production, and the commitment of local labor leaders to industrial unionism to reveal how radicalism became mainstream among Schenectady’s workers.
