Politics in the Marketplace. Work, Gender, and Citizenship in Revolutionary France

Mon, 2019-01-28 09:33

One of the most dramatic images of the French Revolution is of Parisian market women sloshing through mud and dragging cannons as they marched on Versailles and returned with bread and the king. These market women, the Dames des Halles, sold essential foodstuffs to the residents of the capital but, equally important, through their political and economic engagement, held great revolutionary influence.

Arbeitskonflikte und Gender – aktuelle und historische Perspektiven

Mon, 2019-01-28 09:20

Erwerbsarbeit als Form der Vergesellschaftung ist aktuell wie historisch durch Herrschafts- und Machtverhältnisse geprägt und deshalb konflikthaft. Die Tagung verfolgt die Idee, gesellschaftlichen und historischen Wandel durch die geschlechterkritische Analyse von Auseinandersetzungen und Kämpfen in und um Erwerbsarbeit zu thematisieren. Dabei soll es sowohl um kollektiv organisierte Formen von vergeschlechtlichten Arbeitskämpfen (z.B. gewerkschaftliche Streiks) gehen als auch um stärker individualisierte und dezentrale Konfliktformen.

À l'heure où les espaces de rassemblement collectif deviennent des lieux de surveillance, il est réjouissant que les festivals restent des lieux de libre expression.

What is the relationship between the global caesura of “1989” and the many political, economic, social and cultural transformations that have taken place across the world during the last 30 years?

CfP: 13th European Social Science History Conference. Oral History and Life Stories Network

Mon, 2019-01-21 10:40

The Oral History and Life Stories Network brings together oral history and life story researchers and practitioners who explore memory, narrative and history.

In recent decades oral history has stabilized its’ place in and beyond academia to the point, that it has been questioned if oral history has lost its radical roots? Also, the rise of the Internet and social media demands that we reflect on our work according to methodological questions and maybe new challenges in that context. Do the voiceless still need us to give them voice?

CfP: International Conference on War and Social Movements

Mon, 2019-01-21 10:25

Movements for social change have often preceded or immediately followed periods of warfare. The temporal proximity of social movements and warfare raises several interesting questions. Among others, in what ways have movements for social change been linked to periods of violent conflict? How might war contribute to the expansion or limitation of rights for marginalized and oppressed groups? How does warfare shape the attitudes and strategies of social activists in local, transnational, and global contexts?
