We invite you to send proposals for a Special Issue of the International Review of Social History, entitled “When ‘Adjusted’ People Rebel: Economic Liberalization and Social Revolts in Africa and the Middle East (1980s to the present day)”, to be edited by Leyla Dakhli and Vincent Bonnecase. We will focus on papers that offer a perspective from the actors (rebels or actors of liberalization policies) in the so-called Structural Adjustments Revolts in Africa and the Middle East in this period from a perspective of modern social history. Studies must be based on empirical work in one or more countries of the region concerned.
We would like to receive proposals for articles until 1 May 2019. Proposals should be about 3000 characters specifying the issues and the methodology envisaged. Articles should be written in English, but intermediate steps can also be done in French.
Selected proposals should lead to first versions of articles by the beginning of November 2019.
More information on the context of the theme: see the attached pdf.
