Research about domestic
 work, domestic workers, and domestic-worker organizing 
is an abundant and growing field. The attention garnered
 by domestic workers’
 organizing, both nationally and internationally, spurs exchanges between scholars and organizers that have the potential to enrich the work of both groups, providing theoretical, historical, and empirical context to the work of organizers, and providing scholars with an understanding of the priority issues that domestic workers address. This conference assess the current state of this burgeoning field—highlighting scholarly accomplishments, areas of debate, and under-explored issues—and proposes next steps for this historic interchange.
