CfP: 1969-2019 – cinquante ans d’« Autunno caldo » : entre historiographie, héritage et témoignage

Tue, 2019-04-23 09:21

Ce colloque envisage de donner, cinquante ans après les événements, une lecture historique de ce qu'on pourrait appeler le « secondo biennio rosso italiano » (1968-1969) et d’analyser les changements profonds, aux niveaux théorique, philosophique, politique, économique et juridique, survenus grâce aux luttes de l’époque pour améliorer les conditions de vie et de travail des ouvriers. On envisagera également la question de l'« héritage » de cette époque. Que reste-t-il aujourd'hui des luttes, des revendications, desformes d'organisation qu'il a vu naître ou s'affirmer ?

CfP: European Infrastructures and Transnational Protest Movements

Tue, 2019-04-16 10:11

Large-scale infrastructure projects and technologies have often been met with social resistance. Energy and transport infrastructures in particular have led to fierce and at times violent protest movements. Recent German examples of public protest against infrastructure projects include “Stuttgart 21,” over the reconstruction of Stuttgart main station and respective tributary railroad lines, and “Hambacher Forst,” over the extension of lignite open-cut mining into a small forest area between Aachen and Cologne.

CfP: The Sea in the 20th–21st Centuries and the “Forbidden Migrations”

Tue, 2019-04-16 10:05

The Institute of Contemporary History is organizing the second edition of the conference “The Sea in the 20th – 21st Centuries”, having as topic the irregular human mobilities in the maritime space and areas surrounding ports.

The sea is an ambivalent space: of connections and circulation of peoples, objects and ideas and, at the same time, of control and frontier. Such complexity offers the possibility of transforming the sea into a reality to be studied from different perspectives, namely in what concerns migrations.

CGT-CGTU (1934-1935). Vers la réunification.

Tue, 2019-04-16 09:56

La scission intervenue dans la CGT en 1921-1922 s’est prolongée jusqu’en mars 1936. Les années de division ont installé des fractures profondes qui ne seront réduites que dans le contexte de la formation d’un front antifasciste.

À l’automne 1934 des contacts entre la CGT et la CGTU sont établis et ouvrent une longue période de discussions au bout de laquelle les conditions politiques de la reconstitution de l’unité vont se concrétiser.
