The NALSU Team

The Neil Aggett Labour Studies Unit (NALSU) is a hub of labour studies at Rhodes University. Although the unit is formally located in the Department of Sociology and Industrial Sociology, it's members come from the following two academic departments: Sociology & Industrial Sociology and Economics and Economic History. 

The NALSU team has built a diverse body of labour studies research in partnership with national and international networks of researchers, an Eastern Cape Worker Education Project, and a large and active inter-departmental labour studies seminar series. Members of the team actively teach at undergraduate and postgraduate level at Rhodes University, linking postgraduate students to its research, worker education and seminar programmes. NALSU also has a number of affiliates, who are less actively engaged in its work. Affiliates include people who work with NALSU on a project basis, as well as postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars and students who have received funding support from NALSU.
