CfP: Black Lives Matter: a transnational movement

Social and Labour History News - Sun, 2021-04-25 23:21

Since its first appearance in 2013, Black Lives Matter (BLM) has become a widespread social movement dedicated to denouncing and dismantling systemic racism in the United States. As the hashtag #BLM went viral on social and other media, a broad political coalition on the international front was developing, aiming to identify and condemn police violence against young Afro-Americans, and, more generally, the persistent racism targeting black and ethnic minorities of colour in the United States. (Célestine & Martin-Breteau 2020; Recoquillon 2020; Taylor 2016).

We will do this by raising essentially new questions on the social, economic, cultural, and political dimensions of the as yet barely researched Sino-Soviet rivalry for the African continent.

Social and Labour History News - Mon, 2021-04-12 09:58

In recent years, various studies urge us to rethink our perspectives on the definitions, role and functions assumed by different forms of “childhood” in Latin-American societies. Likewise, a growing number of anthropological, historical and educational studies invite us to refer to “childhood(s)” in plural, to express the diversity that characterises the social constructions that give meaning to the idea of child in different times and spaces.

Social and Labour History News - Mon, 2021-04-12 09:47
