In light of the recent placement of Detroit and other Michigan cities in
receivership as well as the battles over public service unions and the
funding of public services in Wisconsin and Illinois, this installation
brings together critical anthropologists, filmmakers and community
activists in conversation. Light refreshments will be served.

Thursday, November 21  4:00-6:00PM
Jane Addams Hull-House Museum
The University of Illinois at Chicago
800 S. Halsted (M/C 051) Chicago, IL 60607-7017
Organizers: Molly Doane, Ida Susser, Susan Hyatt, SANA


The panel includes:
Ida Susser: Introduction

Andy Newman: (Wayne State University): The Crisis in Detroit

Jane Collins (UW-Madison): The Madison uprising

Adrienne Alexander (AFSCME): Chicago perspectives

Jamie Owen Daniel (field service director for the Illinois Federation of
Teachers and Chicago Center for Working-Class Studies): Chicago perspectives

Jim Field (Chicago Coalition for the Homeless)

Christine Noschese (Filmmaker): Clips from Metropolitan Avenue


The event will take place in the Hull House dining hall, where Jane Addams
shared ideas with the leading labor organizers, activists, and
intellectuals of her day. The Hull House Museum features innovative
exhibits that connect the social concerns and activism of today to the
political issues of the early twentieth Century. “Redefining Democracy:
Jane Addams and the Hull House Settlement” and “Unfinished Business: Home
Economics in the 21st Century” will be open 10am-4PM for those interested
in visiting before the event
