            Students in the New York-New Jersey area might be interested
    in attending this forum comparing the student movements from the
    Vietnam War era and today. Professor Foley was an anti-war and
    anti-racist activist herself in the '60's, and has written some great
    books and articles. She's a dynamic and interesting speaker.

    Student Movements Then and Now:
      From the Worker-Student Alliance to the Living Wage

    Barbara Foley

    Barbara Foley will offer a marxist commentary on the potentialities
    and limitations of current campus activism around sweatshop, prison
    labor, and living wage issues. Her own activism with the
    worker-student alliance activism of the late 1960s and early
    1970s--specifically in SDS--will serve as a point of reference.

    Foley, a professor of English at Rutgers University and a long-time
    activist, is currently a member of the Steering committee of the
    Radical Caucus of the Modern Language Association and Chair of the
    Combatting Racism Task Force of NOW-NJ. She has written on U.S.
    proletarian literature and African-American writers and the left.
