CfP: Cold War Liberalism in the North Atlantic

Wed, 05/06/2020 - 09:39

"Cold War liberalism" is one of the most oft-used terms in the historical profession. A diversity of phenomena, from postwar housing policy to U.S. geostrategy to 1950s-era cinema, have been said to be instantiations of the Cold War liberal project. Despite the promiscuous use of "Cold War liberalism," however, the term remains ill-defined, and that which it signifies ill-understood.

CfP: Labour and Migration in the Age of Borders

Mon, 04/27/2020 - 10:18
 

The recent focus in politics and the media on the “migration crisis” and the rise of populisms in Europe is an invitation to interrogate migrations in the light of geopolitical, ethical or identity approaches. With this thematic issue we wish to complement, not contradict, these approaches by reintroducing the economic dimension of migration through a study of the multiple forms of work and labor; and address the entanglements between migration policy and work.

CfP: Travail social et bénévolat, bénévolat en travail social ?

Mon, 04/27/2020 - 10:14

Le travail social tient-il grâce à une quantité de travail invisible et des travailleurs et travailleuses de l’ombre ? Ce travail peut d’abord être pensé comme celui des bénévoles. Leur importance dans le travail social s’enracine dans l’histoire du secteur et la prise en charge des vulnérables, pauvres et indigents par les philanthropes, les congrégations religieuses et les associations du mouvement ouvrier.

CfP: Special Issue of the South African Historical Journal: Anti-Fascism in Southern Africa 1919–2019

Mon, 04/20/2020 - 09:12

Historians have tended, until recently, to treat both inter-war Fascism and Anti-Fascism as almost exclusively European (and to a lesser extent as providing minor themes in the history of the USA, Canada and Australasia). But over the last decade there has been a strong development of studies approaching Fascism as a global phenomenon, (especially in regard to Latin American and South Asia), and of studies of transnational Anti-Fascist campaigns. Current scholarship has also seriously challenged the idea that ‘Anti-Fascism’ was simply a manipulative Stalinist slogan.
