CfP: Criptic Identities. Historicizing the Identity Formation of Persons with Disabilities Across the Globe

Social and Labour History News - Mon, 2018-09-03 09:26

In recent years, 'identity politics' has evolved as a controversial, but also prolific concept within political, academic and activist debates. A growing body of literature sheds light on different assumptions about identity as a concept that is as much related to expressions of individuality and subjectivity as it is to specific social groups, typically described as outsiders on the margins of society and the political mainstream.

Boekpresentatie: Vijf Eeuwen Migratie

Events, IISH, Amsterdam - Tue, 2018-08-21 15:37

‘Je schrijft de oplossing voor een ingewikkelde kwestie als migratie niet op de achterkant van een bierviltje’, aldus Leo Lucassen, directeur onderzoek van het Internationaal Instituut voor Sociale Geschiedenis. Samen met zijn broer Jan schreef hij in 2011 een boek over vijf eeuwen migratie. Het groeide uit tot een standaardwerk over migratie in Nederland, en verschijnt nu in een geheel herziene en geactualiseerde editie. De reacties op het werk zijn verdeeld. Onder leiding van Liesbeth Staats gaan de auteurs met hun criticasters in gesprek.
