COVID-19 and the future of our discipline

Thu, 2020-05-07 18:29

The Social History Society has released an official statement on the impact of COVID-19 on the working lives of historians, and the implications for the future of our discipline.

The practice of social and cultural history has always depended on the contributions of scholars across all career stages.

CfP: Cold War Liberalism in the North Atlantic

Wed, 2020-05-06 09:39

"Cold War liberalism" is one of the most oft-used terms in the historical profession. A diversity of phenomena, from postwar housing policy to U.S. geostrategy to 1950s-era cinema, have been said to be instantiations of the Cold War liberal project. Despite the promiscuous use of "Cold War liberalism," however, the term remains ill-defined, and that which it signifies ill-understood.

CfP: Labour and Migration in the Age of Borders

Mon, 2020-04-27 10:18

The recent focus in politics and the media on the “migration crisis” and the rise of populisms in Europe is an invitation to interrogate migrations in the light of geopolitical, ethical or identity approaches. With this thematic issue we wish to complement, not contradict, these approaches by reintroducing the economic dimension of migration through a study of the multiple forms of work and labor; and address the entanglements between migration policy and work.

Leur importance dans le travail social s’enracine dans l’histoire du secteur et la prise en charge des vulnérables, pauvres et indigents par les philanthropes, les congrégations religieuses et les associations du mouvement ouvrier.
