CfP: Race relations and racism in the worlds of labor

Call for papers, deadline 1 July 2023

Dossier: Race relations and racism in the worlds of labor, edited by Paulo Cruz Terra (UFF) e Robério Souza (UNEB)

This dossier is related to the effort of labor historiography to broaden the perspective on the working class. In this sense, the dossier aims to bring together unpublished articles that analyze the multiple connections between racial relations, racism and worlds of labor over time and in different locations. The dossier seeks contributions that deal with how racism and ethnic-racial conflicts were, and are, part of labor relations and were, and are, present in the formulation and execution of laws and measures directed to workers. Furthermore, the dossier intends to publish analyzes of how male and female workers dealt with race relations and racism. Therefore, articles that address how these issues appear in the different dimensions of the world of labor are welcome, such as in associations, press, forms of mobilization and sociability of the working class. It is intended, therefore, to bring together studies that focus on agency and resistance possibilities. In this direction, we encourage submitting proposals focusing on the male and female workers’ trajectories with the racial issue as central. Finally, it is essential to emphasize that the dossier is not restricted to reflections about Brazil, and submissions dealing with other national contexts, particularly transnational and global dynamics, are also encouraged.
