In 1978 the women’s studies journal Signs published a special issue “women, science, and society”–a milestone in the formation of a broad and heterogeneous body of work dedicated to the role of gender in the production, dissemination, and application of “scientific knowledge” and “technology”.
The integral contribution of mobile, migrant and transient workers to the development of early and late-modern European agriculture, industry and commerce has been increasingly recognized by labour and migration historians alike. While scholars of these fields have traditionally focused on the young migrant male and the industrial labourer, the diversity of itinerant workers has since the 1970s been underlined, as well as the complexity of transnational, regional and local moves.

The Life of Mary Macarthur - to fight, to struggle, to right the wrong

De Yalta à la chute du mur, le partage du monde en ce l’on appelle alors des « zones d’influence », exacerbe, en plusieurs endroits et sur tous les continents, les tensions politiques et militaires. Dans les pays sous emprise soviétique ou américaine, des artistes, femmes et hommes, confrontés à la censure ou menacés dans leur propre pays, se voient contraints à un exil plus ou moins volontaires. Parmi ces artistes, certains sont accueillis en France au titre d’exilés politiques.
In general, narratives about the end of the USSR focus on domestic dimensions of the disintegration of the Soviet Union or discuss reasons and consequences of the Soviet decline in the context of Cold War history.
Both perspectives are highly relevant for an interpretation of the events of 1991 and their consequences. Nevertheless, they too often obscure the view on other essential international and global perspectives.
Final Conference of the project “Family planning” in East Central Europe from the 19th Century until the approval of the “pill”.
Gleiche Rechte für alle Menschen aller Geschlechter: Das galt lange als ein zwar noch nicht erreichtes, aber unumstrittenes Ziel. Doch diese Einigkeit ist in letzter Zeit brüchig geworden – der Einsatz für Frauen- und Geschlechterrechte wird von unterschiedlichen Seiten als „Gender-Ideologie“ kritisiert.
