Rosalux History // Der Geschichtspodcast der Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung

Mon, 2020-08-31 11:30

Im Podcast «Rosalux History» geht es darum, «Geschichte gegen den Strich zu bürsten» (Walter Benjamin). Denn wer will schon bloß nacherzählen, was uns die Hofschreiber vergangener Epochen überliefert haben? Wir wollen von einer anderen, einer Geschichte von unten berichten – und jenen mit Empathie begegnen, die heute, in der Gegenwart, von den Erben der herrschenden Klassen der Vergangenheit beherrscht werden.

CfP: New Edited Volume: Micro-Historical Perspectives on an Integrated History of the Holocaust

Mon, 2020-08-31 11:28

We are pleased to announce a Call for Papers for an interdisciplinary edited volume on new approaches to an integrated history of the Holocaust. Our edited volume aims to approach to Holocaust history in a way that combines macro analysis with micro studies of individual actions and responses. We seek to combine these perspectives in order to uncover connections that might not be so easily seen with a more traditional, singular approach.

CfP: Figures and Perspectives on the Mass and the Individual in Capitalist Modernity (19th-21st century)

Mon, 2020-08-31 11:19

From there on, the relationship between mass and individual can be addressed in many fashions: Are there any specific ways for the mass to organize itself as a political subject? What are means whereby artworks represent and transform the linkage between  mass and individual? What are the mutations undergone by the mass qua object of the social sciences?

Mon, 2020-08-17 11:10
 In the twenty years since the publication of Florence Bernault’s edited volume A History of Prison and Confinement in Africa, the study of Africa’s penal systems has expanded tremendously. This scholarship has not only provided a clearer picture of penal ideas and institutions on the African continent across multiple time periods and locations, it has also offered insights into wider questions about the relationship between punishment, colonialism, and decolonization as well as the global circulation of penal techniques.
