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.
