CfP: Reimagining Citizenship in Postwar Europe

Mon, 2021-08-09 11:57

Although fighting in the European theatre of World War II officially ended in May 1945, for millions of displaced and homeless individuals the struggle had only begun. Large groups of ethnic minorities were subjected to resettlement policies that uprooted them from their former homes. Others, mainly from Eastern Europe, fought against repatriation to their countries of origin. At the same time, Allied occupiers and new governments across the continent began to rethink what sovereignty might look like after the war.

"Special Issue Call for Papers - Journal of Labor and Society: Imperialism and Resistance in Middle East and North Africa A decade after the epochal revolutions of 2011, the Middle East and North Africa is subject to an extraordinary condensation of the old and new aspects of imperialism. For instance, the 'settler-colonialism' of Israel and the pertinent effects of the 'classical' occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq endure in tandem with new forms of external and regional military interventions.

CfP: Poverty and Scarcity in Global History

Mon, 2021-07-26 09:10
Queen's Global History Initiative and the Poverty Research Network at University of Glasgow are proud to partner for an upcoming conference: "Poverty and Scarcity in Global History," Feb. 3-5, 2022.

Poverty, or fear of poverty, is ubiquitous in global history. Local instances of want, shortage, and hunger have often been both causes and consequences of global processes. Global integration and trans-local interconnections since the premodern era underpinned the emergence of the global systems of capitalism and colonialism, which in turn have left us with structural inequality.

CfP: À la recherche du temps perçu. Les temporalités dans l’Empire russe, l’URSS et le monde

Mon, 2021-07-19 11:09
Argumentaire

Organisée par le GDR Empire russe, URSS et monde soviétique, cette troisième journée d’étude propose de réfléchir à la perception du temps durant les périodes de mutations et d’innovations. Si nombre d’études historiques, par la place accordée à la chronologie, insistent sur le fait que « l’histoire est un travail sur le temps »,[1] une réflexion sur les temporalités constitue aujourd’hui un lieu commun pour plusieurs disciplines des sciences sociales.
