CfP: Family Economy & Feminist Labour history (session at the III ELHN Conference)

Social and Labour History News - Fri, 2018-07-27 11:41

 

Feminist labour history has for a long time been engaged in making women’s work visible and to integrate women’s work in households and families in the larger narratives of the history of work and the history of labour. More recently, the economic history and the history of the family have been deeply renewed by studies integrating the gender dimension and focusing on the household economy, a quite neglected issue until present.

How Maoism was Made: Analysing Chinese Communism beyond the Totalitarian Lens, 1949-1965

Social and Labour History News - Fri, 2018-07-27 11:04

2019 will mark the 70th anniversary of the People’s Republic of China, the world’s largest socialist society. Although popularly perceived as a rupture, historians have increasingly emphasised continuities across the 1949 divide, making the end of the Maoist system in 1978 a much more striking transition. The picture that emerges from the early PRC is one in which China is not a top-down totalitarian regime, but one enabled by ordinary people wishing to secure their place, including scientists, farmers, artists, and religious officials.
