CfP: Redes transnacionales e intercambios culturales e intelectuales en torno a la Revolución cubana (1959-1971)

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 11:21

La Revolución cubana se conformó, desde sus inicios, como un fenómeno de resonancias internacionales. Intelectuales de todo el mundo interpretaron y se interesaron por un proceso original dentro de las lógicas geopolíticas de la Guerra Fría. Desde 1959, intelectuales europeos, africanos, asiáticos y americanos viajaron a Cuba, establecieron conexiones con sus pares de la isla, participaron en los debates culturales y políticos del momento y cooperaron en la configuración de una comunidad a escala transnacional.


CfP: Music and the Spanish Civil War

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 10:45

This two-day conference aims to create a framework for a broader understanding of the ways in which Spanish and non-Spanish musicians (including composers, performers, conductors, musicologists, critics, and others) relate to this key historical and ideological conflict of the 20th century. These relationships are not limited to the wartime period but also include the subsequent decades, in which a large number of musicians from Spain and abroad reflected on the confrontation and its consequences in their work.

Cette Journée d'Etudes portera sur les liens entre violence et politique dans l'Amérique Latine contemporaine (XX-XXIème). Nous nous proposons d'examiner le phénomène de la violence comme élément structurant du politique dans le sous-continent, qu'il s'agisse d'une violence d'"en haut" (contrôle, répression exercés par l'Etat), d'"en bas", sous une forme extrême ou diffuse. Nous nous interrogerons sur les modalités de manifestation et d'expression de la violence, ainsi que sur les buts qu'elle peut servir.

CfP: The Moral Economies of Knowledge Production on Migration: Conflicts, Values, Positionalities

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 10:03

In current research about migration, there is a growing interest in the ways in which knowledge shapes migration and the experiences and apparatuses connected to it. Researchers, thus, draw attention to the categories, technologies, and data that inform border and migration policies (and vice versa). They point to the ways in which different mobilities come to be categorized, ordered and made legible to the state. They explore how the production of mobile subjects such as “the expat” or “the illegal migrant” is interconnected with specific imaginations of nations, societies or empires.

Marx Memorial Library Flood Appeal

Marx Memorial Library Flood Appeal
- £37,500 raised, £12,500 to go! Can you help?

On 24 September 2019 the Marx Memorial Library suffered a devastating flood. Problems with our flat roof and drainage system meant water gushed through our storerooms. Thanks to a collective effort – MML staff, volunteers, trustees, the fire brigade and Islington Heritage – we avoided major damage to our collections.

However, this event has given impetus to an urgent programme of works to
