CfP: Between Economy and Morality – The Anti-Slavery Movements as a Transnational Network in the “Long 19th Century”

Sun, 2023-01-29 20:10

Starting in the United Kingdom, the abolition of slavery quickly became one of the most pressing social issues of the 19th century. Contrary to the commonly held perception that the anti-slavery movements were a teleological success story, slavery underwent a number of phases of abolition and reintroduction, while the informal exploitative structures of ‘slavery’ never completely disappeared. This was exacerbated by the fact that the various systems of slavery spanned several eras, continents, and ideological histories.

CfP: Habiter les faubourgs et les banlieues de la fin du Moyen Âge à aujourd’hui

Thu, 2023-01-26 11:48
Argumentaire

Ce colloque propose d’entrer dans les logements, les parties communes ainsi que les abords des immeubles et maisons des faubourgs et banlieues pour aborder l’histoire de ces territoires sous un autre angle que celui des espaces productifs, périphériques ou relégués et en mettant en question l’image contemporaine des banlieues populaires comme lieux d’habitat contraint, mal conçu, inhabitable ou encore des « banlieues dortoirs ». « Habiter la banlieue » n’est pas l’équivalent de « vivre en banlieue » car c’est l’espace privé qui est alors en jeu.
