Liberating Memory: Our Work and Our Working-Class Consciousness - used book

ISBN: 081352122X

ID: 3350037

This is a book about working-class identity, consciousness, and self-determination. It offers an alternative to middle-class assimiliation and working-class amnesia. The twenty-five contributors use memory--both personal and collective--to show the relationship between the uncertain economic rhythms of working-class life and the possibilities for cultural and political agency. Manual labor and intellectual work are connected in these multicultural autobiographies of writers, educators, artists, political activists, musicians, and photographers and in the cultural work--the poems, stories, photographs, lectures, music--they produce. Illustrated with family snapshots, this collection--the first of its kind--includes the work of a female machinist who is also a poet, a secretary who is also a writer, a poet who worked on the assembly line, a musician who was also a red-diaper baby, and an academic who is recovering the working-class writing of her father. The consciousness that is revealed in this book makes evident the value of class identity to collective, democratic struggle. The contributors are Maggie Anderson, Steve Cagan, Jim Daniels, Lennard Davis, Masani Alexis de Veaux, Sue Doro, Julie Olsen Edwards, Carol Faulkner, Barbara Fox, Laura Hapke, Florence Howe, David Joseph, Linda McCarriston, Wilma Elizabeth McDaniel, Gregory Mantsios, M.

Liberating Memory: Our Work and Our Working-Class Consciousness - Paperback

1994, ISBN: 9780813521220

ID: 214008661

Piscataway, New Jersey, U.S.A.: Rutgers Univ Pr, 1994. From Booklist Editor Zandy has collected essays, poems, and stories from 25 contributors who share their experiences as members of the working class. Central to the book is the rejection of the notion that being working class is something to overcome. The writers find great strength and value in this class, even though many of the writers have, admittedly, left it. Some reveal a fair amount of anger, mostly over the way the upper and middle classes treat them. They fight the dehumanizing forces of repetitive, boring, and often dangerous work. During the Vietnam War, they did not have the option of a college deferment. But they are rarely self-pitying, often quite ironic and humorous. The language and voice of the working class live in this book, and the depth and complexity of both are reminders of how important these people are to our society. Brian McCombie --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Product Description This book about working-class identity, consciousness, and agency offers an alternative to middle-class assimilation and working-class amnesia. The 25 contributors use memory--both personal and collective--to show the relationship between the uncertain economic rhythms of working-class life and the possibilities for cultural and political agency. 40 illustrations. .
