ToC: Sozial.Geschichte Online/Offline

Table of contents, nr 22, 2018

Sozial.Geschichte Online is an academic journal of social history with a special focus on global labour history, the history of National Socialism, its antecedents and aftermath, and new social movements. Other subjects the journal engages with regularly include the conflicts surrounding the European Union's efforts to ward off immigration and conflicts over immigration in general; labour struggles within the field of precarious employment; self-organisation of workers in the BRICS states; the history of anti-authoritarian currents within the labour movement; conflicts surrounding urban development within and without Europe; the 20th century social history of Eastern Europe; and social conflicts in contemporary Eastern Europe.

The journal is committed to taking as geographically broad as possible a view of historical and contemporary developments. The aim is not so much to arrive at a comprehensive overview of events the world over as to cultivate attention to developments in different regions and parts of the world. The journal welcomes comparative approaches and critical theoretical engagement with eurocentrism and methodological nationalism.

The current issue of Sozial.Geschichte Online includes articles on anti-Semitism in imperial Germany and the Weimar Republic, the economic survival strategies of Jewish immigrants in Belgium between 1918 and 1942, Wilhelm Reich's and Erich Fromm's analyses of right-wing authoritarianism and ongoing debates within the historiography of modern Greece.

All articles are available as PDFs that can be downloaded free of charge:
