UCLA Entertainment/Sports Labor Conference This Fri./Sat.

UCLA's Institute for Research on Labor and Employment, whose focus is usually on traditional unions and workplaces, is going Hollywood this weekend, hosting a conference that looks at the unusual nature of work in the entertainment industry and its equally bespoke sibling, the sports industry.

The meeting, titled “Labor, Entertainment, & Sports: An Intersectional and Interdisciplinary Inquiry,” is a two-day, all-day affair, Friday and Saturday, April 17-18, at the Crowne Plaza Beverly Hills Hotel.

I'll be one of the panelists and will be speaking about residuals. For more info, see my curtain raiser at www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/ucla-host-entertainment-sports-labor-789060.
