Social and Labour History News
From October 2017 until July 2018, the fellows of the research group “In Search of the Global Labour Market” have been living and working at ZiF to examine the question of whether there is a global labour market at all and how it should be analysed from a theoretical and empirical perspective.
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?

DOING GENDER IN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE: THEORY AND PRACTICE
The ESSHC Women and Gender network invites proposals for individual papers and sessions (3-4 speakers, a chair and a commentator) focussing on interconnections between practice and theory in applying gender-sensitive historical analysis. We would like to discuss the following questions during our forthcoming conference:
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?

« Dès lendemain de la bataille, hommes et femmes, tous avaient à la bouche ce mot d’association, symbole de salut, qui semblait avoir en soi quelque vertu mystique. On criait « Association, association » comme jadis les vilains criaient : « Commune ! » et les Croisés « Dieu le veut ! » (Lettre de Pauline Roland à Guépin, 10 mai 1850)

Protests and social movements are fuzzy objects to study. Scholars face a lack of clear boundaries, diversity-by-definition, and -often dramatic- changes over time. The field of social movement studies holds particular challenges to researchers with a view to getting the research design straight and becoming clear about the restrictions of an argument. These challenges contrast with the conditions of scientific production: the lion’s share of research on social movements and protests is realized in individual post-graduate projects.

The social history of black populations in France / Histoire sociale des populations noires en France
Depuis plusieurs années, des travaux étudient les formes de racialisation subies, ou revendiquées par certains groupes dans la société française, en particulier par les populations noires. Ils invitent également à analyser les usages sociaux de la notion de race – entendue comme un fait social et non biologique – en France et ils interrogent de façon générale la place à accorder à la « question raciale » dans l’historiographie française. Quelle histoire sociale des populations noires ces travaux permettent-ils de construire ?
