Back to the Future

Mapping Workers across the Global South

(p.214) 8 Back to the Future
Looking South

Mary E. Frederickson

University Press of Florida

The final chapter of this book begins with a visit to a weave room in Uzbekistan filled with cast-iron looms from the Carolina textile plants of the 1920s. The story of how these looms ended up in Uzbekistan is not a straightforward tale of southern deindustrialization and expanding Asian labor markets. As the chapter maps the movement of workers into factories across what is now called the Global South, the discussion returns to the New South paradigm that became the archetype for labor relations in twentieth-century America to show how it has now also become the model for industrialization throughout the Global South, transforming that vast swath of the world into another “New South” and now writ large on the world stage.

Keywords:   Uzbekistan, Carolina textile plants, southern deindustrialization, Asian labor markets, Global South
