The European Labour History Network (ELHN) is pleased to announce its first conference from 14-16 December 2015 at the University of Turin facilitated and hosted by Stefano Musso (President of the Società Italiana di Storia del lavoro/SISLav – Italian Society of Labour History) in collaboration with ISMEL-Torino.
The ELHN was founded in October 2013 in Amsterdam as a network of labour historians in order to bring together scholars with different institutional backgrounds (institutes, associations, archives, journals, study groups, individual researchers, etc.) and serve as an umbrella organization for smaller working groups with specific topics and tasks.
In accordance with the decisions of the foundation meeting of the ELHN, the first conference of the network will be structured differently to other comparable scholarly conferences and will also provide the possibility to gather colleagues from all over Europe in order to work on specific common projects regarding European labour history. Therefore, the main part of the conference will be dedicated to ELHN working groups that will themselves decide on their specific agenda during the conference. The individual working groups are responsible for drafting their own agenda during the conference.
We are providing all call for papers/contributions of the individual working groups below. If you are interested in submitting a proposal, please contact the regarding organisers outlined in the specific call.
