CfP: Ethnographying Labour in Large-Scale Agriculture. Renewed Social Histories, between Work, Migration and Daily Lives

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 12:27

The past decade was marked by a new and massive investment phenomenon targeting land. Even if not always successful, thousands of new land acquisitions by private companies, investment funds, states or local elite did took place, and have dramatically extended the area concerned by large-scale agriculture (Borras et. al, 2014). Latin America, Africa, South-East Asia and Eastern Europa were the most affected regions, but in the meantime the agricultural models are experiencing rapid transformations (financialization, concentrations) in the Northern countries too (Purseigle et al, 2018).

CfP: Activist Histories of Ireland

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 09:56

The term ‘activist’ was first used to describe groups in the early twentieth century, including Irish nationalists, who were active on behalf of Germany during the First World War, but consolidated its contemporary meaning during the countercultural revolutions of the long 1960s. Conceptually, however, ‘activists’ – those who lead or drive forward movements to enact political change – have played a central role throughout modern Irish history, and continue to do so today.

CfP: Gender Relationships between Occupiers and Occupied during the Allied Occupation of Germany (1945-1955)

Mon, 12/17/2018 - 09:36

There is currently a renewed interest in the Allied occupation of Germany after 1945 and in military occupation in general. Concerning the occupation of Germany after 1945, there is a lot of work dedicated to its economic, political and cultural dimensions. More oriented towards the "history from below", current research questions the daily life of military occupation, the places and forms of encounters between occupiers and occupied, covering a whole range of interactions from conflicts or confrontations to various forms of cooperation or fraternization.

Rethinking Social Spaces in an Epochal Comparison: Concepts and Approaches in Historical Migration Research

Sat, 12/15/2018 - 12:11

Migration shapes societies and cultures, and it was doing so well before the current »refugee phase«. Interdisciplinary migration research has for several decades been attempting to identify unifying and dividing forces within and between migration societies. In doing so, it makes use of concepts and methodological approaches that in recent years have been considerably extended by new techniques from the social and cultural sciences and from mobility Studies in particular. Particularly notable in this respect is the use of the concept of »multiple mobilities« in these fields.

CfP: Immigrazioni. International migrations and labor from the 70s to the present: an historical perspective

Tue, 12/11/2018 - 15:06

The complex intertwining of immigration and labor market is a highly topical subject even nowadays: the forced displacements we are witnessing in recent years are, in fact, only a portion of the migration to Western Countries, from World War II until the present day.
