Executive Vice President and Provost
Corey Dolgon, a Ph.D. in American Culture and Sociology Professor, has been performing “singing lectures” for more than a decade. Focusing on the role that folksongs play in the U.S. labor movement, Corey’s words and music bring both history and theory to life. He is a long-time labor activist and community organizer and has used folk songs to build solidarity on the line and engage students in the classroom. This singing lecture covers labor history from a multicultural perspective and examines the function of folk songs in workers’ lives, labor and organizing. This event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the UNI Interpreters Theatre, the Department of Communication Studies and the College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences.
