CfP: Labour Migration in the Cold War and beyond: New questions, methods and sources

Mon, 2020-12-21 11:15

Labour migration, whether short- or long-term, domestic or international, played an important part in transforming the world during the Cold War period. Yet how this migration affected Cold War dynamics, and was in turn shaped by them, has been under-researched. The study of experiences and perspectives on labour migration to the West in the post-1945 period has dominated empirical, theoretical and methodological studies on the history of international labour migration.

CfP: Anti-fascism and Ethnic Minorities: Political and Cultural Forms of Resistance in Central and Eastern Europe, ca 1920–1950

Mon, 2020-12-21 11:09

The relation between anti-fascism and ethnic minorities has largely been overlooked in the previous research dealing with anti-fascism and resistance in Europe.

Did ethnic minorities thus have a stronger position in anti-fascist political and cultural activism?

Mon, 2020-12-21 10:54
