Professor Dana Frank of UC Santa Cruz will be leading an all day op-ed writing workshop on Saturday, May 6th. This workshop, offered on an annual basis by the UCSB Center for Work, Labor, and Democracy, provides faculty and students with an opportunity to hone their op-ed writing skills, translating their historical expertise into opinion pieces that speak to the present.
In addition to writing frequently for The Nation, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and The Huffington Post, Frank is the author of Local Girl Makes History: Exploring Northern California’s Kitsch Monuments (2007); Bananeras: Women Transforming the Banana Unions of Latin America (2005); and Buy American: The Untold Story of Economic Nationalism (1999).
If you wish to participate in this workshop, please contact Caitlin Rathe at: crathe(at)umail.ucsb.edu. There is space for 12 participants; coffee and a light lunch will be provided.
