Competing Socialisms: The Sino-Soviet Rivalry in Africa during the Cold War

Sun, 2021-04-18 20:48

The participants of the workshop consider the Cold War as a multilateral conflict that created specific global connections'. We seek to realign the interdisciplinary analysis of its 'glocal' interdependencies. We will do this by raising essentially new questions on the social, economic, cultural, and political dimensions of the as yet barely researched Sino-Soviet rivalry for the African continent.

CfP: Childhood(s) in Latin America: diversities in tension

Mon, 2021-04-12 09:58

In recent years, various studies urge us to rethink our perspectives on the definitions, role and functions assumed by different forms of “childhood” in Latin-American societies. Likewise, a growing number of anthropological, historical and educational studies invite us to refer to “childhood(s)” in plural, to express the diversity that characterises the social constructions that give meaning to the idea of child in different times and spaces.

Mon, 2021-04-12 09:47

This international workshop will bring together established and emerging scholars to chart the intersection between refugee history and Cold War history.

As recent research in both areas has highlighted, however, forced displacement and Cold War competition were global phenomena.
