The association was formed in 2003 to promote the study of working-class people and their culture. WCSA is made up of academics, activists, teachers, writers, poets, journalists, practitioners, students, artists and a wide range of others interested in developing the field of working-class studies. WCSA hold an annual conference as well as other events and act as a discussion forum for working-class issues. You can get involved and become a member here.
In 2016 WCSA launched the Journal of Working-Class Studies and are always looking for new people to become involved in the field and contribute to the discussion.
