CfP: Working all night: modernity, night shifts and the temporal organization of labour across political and economic regimes

Social and Labour History News - Mon, 2019-03-04 09:40

The night, starting after dusk and progressing into the dark and early hours, has always and almost universally, across cultures and societies, represented a special, ‘liminal’ or ‘out of the ordinary’ temporal zone with its own meanings, possibilities and dangers, having specific political, cultural, religious and social implications. It is only since the modern era that the night has become increasingly ‘normalised’, disenchanted and colonised, for example in terms of production processes and services extending into the night.

The last few years have been marked by major economic, social and political turbulences. They have been years full of hope, but also full of threats.

In the face of an unprecedented crisis of civilisation, political and social activism has flourished anew, in parallel with the renaissance of reactionary forces and movements.

The aim of this conference will be to analyse the characteristics of 19th-century French industrialisation and to understand how they distinguish France from other countries that went through the same process in the same era. Instead of using the English case as the only reference (as is customary), particular attention will be paid to a comparison between France and other continental European countries, especially Germany.

CfP: Socialism's Divergent Masculinities: Representations of Male Subjectivities in Soviet Constellations and Beyond

Social and Labour History News - Wed, 2019-02-20 15:02

From its beginning the Soviet Union was a project of substantial reshaping of gender relations. A central goal of Soviet politics was to encourage women to undertake paid work. In transferring practically all economic and social power to the state, customary gender roles of men as breadwinners and patriarchs were challenged. Starting with war communism through forced industrialization and collectivization to compulsory military service, socialist workers and peasants were tied to the modern disciplinary power as never before.
