An autoethnographic, theoretical, and historical exploration of janitor and student solidarity at Wesleyan University. Beginning by conceptualising the university as a space in relation to reproductive labor, this thesis complicates notions of both. This work provides a critical lense through which to view student-janitor solidarity movements that took place at Wesleyan between 1999 and 2013. Lastly, it provides an auto ethnographic account of contemporary student-janitor organizing. This thesis ultimately provides information about unlikely relationships: complex,problematic, sometimes groundbreaking, yet filled with potential.
