Mon, 2020-05-25 09:53

Comparing the Copperbelt is an ERC-funded research project, running at the University of Oxford from 2016-2021. The project aims to examine the Copperbelt (in both Zambia and the DR Congo) as a single region divided by a (post-)colonial border, across which flowed minerals, people and ideas. It analyses how academic knowledge production (e.g. by the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute and CEPSI) shaped understanding of Copperbelt societies and it seeks ways to explore Copperbelt political culture and popular perceptions from a historical perspective.

CfP: ddh20 - Data and Digital Humanities 2020

Mon, 2020-05-18 12:03

The digital humanities offer a particularly rich research field of studies for data processing, apart from those of the hard sciences and the social sciences. Indeed, the humanities are rarely subject to privacy principles (privacy by design, GDPR…) that affect most social science works and are not just about digital or binary data. Moreover, in DH the data pre-exist and are most often already known if they are not collected and formalized.

CfP: Delinquency, crimes and repression in History

Mon, 2020-05-18 12:01

The question of delinquency, in the most general sense of the term, is particularly complex because criminologists, sociologists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, doctors, lawyers, and historians who have studied this subject extensively have often expressed very different and even contradictory opinions. Difficulties arise as soon as the phenomenon is to be defined. In French law, the word “delinquency” designates all types of offenses.

The proposed issue of Critical Interventions addresses appropriations of black cultural aesthetics in regions that historically lack significant and visible Black communities, such as Asia and/or Eastern Europe.

CfP: Métiers d’autrefois en Europe occidentale. De l’artisanat à l’usine (années 1830 – années 1930)

Mon, 2020-05-11 09:42

Commencée au XVIIIe siècle en Angleterre, la Révolution industrielle gagne la Belgique puis la France avant d’atteindre les espaces germaniques mais aussi les contrées septentrionales de l’Espagne et de l’Italie au cours du XIXe siècle. D’une manière de plus en plus active se développe un artisanat qui, au fil du temps et par des mutations techniques, s’industrialise largement. S’opère alors une mutation de bien des métiers au point que certains disparaissent ou se trouvent profondément bouleversés alors qu’éclate la Deuxième Guerre mondiale.
