  • About

    Ian Robinson, Ph.D., is Lecturer IV and Associate Research Scientist in the Department of Sociology and the Residential College's Social Theory and Practice program, at the University of Michigan.  Most of his research and writing have focused on the nature of neoliberal economic restructuring, its impacts on working people and the labor movement, and strategies for rebuilding labor movement power in North America.  He has deepened his understanding of these matters by participating in the CRIMT research network, based at the University of Montreal, and in the U.S. labor movement, as a founding member and elected leader of the union of nontenure-track faculty (LEO) at UM, and later, as the President of the Huron Valley Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, and as a "labor expert" member of the Board of the Sweatfree Purchasing Consortium.
