Luke Elliott-Negri conducts labor research at the School of Labor and Urban Studies of the City University of New York and is a doctoral candidate at the CUNY Graduate Center. He is author of several articles about industrial unionism and is the coauthor of a policy report on Connecticut’s paid sick days law. His dissertation analyzes the history and prospects of the New York-based Working Families Party against the backdrop of the literature on American exceptionalism with respect to party formation, and his co-authored book project about social movement success and failure is under review at Oxford University Press. Luke’s Humanities New York project, entitled Human Politics, seeks to humanize and demystify politics, politicians, and political decision-making through short podcast interviews with individuals who are, broadly defined, politically active. Some interviews will be with sitting legislators or first-time candidates, others with people who became politically active post-2016 often in very local ways, and—hopefully—everyone in between.
