REDNECK STUDIES 

In a time of rising cultural contradictions, the working class has become contested territory.

The working class has become increasingly racialized with media and political leaders exacerbating these divisions for political gain.  This class aims to define the contested white working class on our own terms including putting forth the notion that the white working class only exists as a political football and that the historical term redneck meant a multiracial class alliance.

Financial Stipend Available

$100 to defray the costs of attending the Redneck Studies course offered by the Automotive Free Clinic and Dr. Zachary Silverman Hyden. Five (5) applicants will be chosen to receive a stipend.
