CfP: Historical Materialism Special Issue on ‘Western Marxism’

Tue, 2022-10-04 15:58

Ever since the publication in 1976 of Perry Anderson’s Considerations on Western Marxism, the very notion of Western Marxism has been a reference point, a widely used categorization, and the object of intense debates and controversies. The idea that there is a particular version of ‘Western’ Marxism, opposed to both classical Marxism, but also to ‘Eastern’ Marxism, in the sense of the Marxist orthodoxy projected by the Soviet Union, was not, of course, Anderson’s in the first place.

CfP: Writing Global History: Perspectives from Global South

Fri, 2022-09-30 16:37

Global history is emerging as a significant perspective in contemporary history writing. This approach examines the transnational networks through which human societies emerge as interactive global communities. Its increasing relevance can be attributed to its explicit focus on transnational relations; transcending euro-centric dominance; and exploring interconnections between and among (but not limited to) regions, communities, and commodities across historical periods.
