CfP: Gender, Intersectionality and Dependency Workshop at the University of Bonn, 18-19 July 2019

Mon, 05/13/2019 - 15:02

In January 2019 the new Cluster of Excellence “Beyond Slavery and Freedom. Asymmetrical Dependencies in Pre-Modern Societies” was established at the University of Bonn.

So far, dependency research has often dealt with transatlantic slavery or slavery in antiquity. The Cluster seeks to broaden this perspective in terms of content, space and time. From the starting point of five research areas, researchers will explore perspectives of dependency(ies), with the added aim of also broadening individual academic training through cooperation across disciplines.

CfP: Labour history of socialist globalisation: The view from the shop-floor

Mon, 05/13/2019 - 09:24

The Chair of History of Eastern Europe at the University of Konstanz is pleased to invite applicants to a workshop exploring new developments in the labour history of globalisation in socialist Eastern Europe. Focusing on the period between the 1960s and the 2000s, the workshop seeks to investigate how growing economic entanglements between socialist Eastern Europe (Yugoslavia and the CMEA) and the Global South on the one hand, or the Western capitalist world on the other, shaped workplaces and working lives “back home”.
