About Lucien van der Walt
I teach at Rhodes University, the Eastern Cape; I’m South African, born and bred; I am also involved in union education. I’ve presented papers at more than 100 conferences and workshops, published in key journals like 'Capital and Class' and 'Labor History', plus 4 books and 3 edited journal specials, and more than 100 other articles, papers and entries. Winner of the 2008 international 'Labor History' thesis prize, and the 2008/2009 CODESRIA Africa dissertation prize, my thesis on South African anarchism and syndicalism, I recently co-wrote 'Black Flame: the revolutionary class politics of anarchism and syndicalism' (with Michael Schmidt, AK Press 2009) and co-edited 'Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1880-1940: the praxis of national liberation, internationalism, and social sevolution' (with Steve Hirsch, Brill 2010). I have a background in trade union education, social movement activism, the Workers’ Library and Museum, the Anti-Privatisation Forum, and the National Health and Allied Workers Union.
