Please join us on Tues., April 27, at 12:15 PM, as April Gaming Research Fellow Theodor Gordon delivers a Gaming Research Colloquium talk entitled "Tribal Sovereignty and Worker Solidarity: Casino Labor Relations & Tribal Self-Determination." 

This event is free and open to the public.Those interested in the history, economics, anthropology, and labor relations of casinos are encouraged to attend. 

Place: UNLV Special Collections' Reading Room, third floor of Lied Library.

Gordon, a doctoral candidate in anthropology at the University of California, Riverside, is studying the new cultural and political challenges created by the increasing employment of non-Indians in tribal casinos.  What unique workplace anxieties emerge in a tribal casino? How might new tribal labor regulations impinge on tribal self-determination?   Gordon addresses these questions through a systematic examination of tribal casino trade publications and demonstrates how recent developments in tribal labor relations reflect broader shifts in the boundaries of tribal self-determination.
