Winnipeg General Strike via Dickens & Williams

Winnipeg-GeneralStrike10Given the most recent decision by the Canadian Museum of History to rethink the display of the Winnipeg General Strike identified by the Toronto Star last week, we have decided to speak to the significance of the labour action taken almost 100 years through the literacy we have been reading. Both A Street Car Named Desire and Great Expectations discuss notions of class, race, gender, and ethnicity in relation to social justice and we have used this though experiment to look at Winnipeg in 2015.
