Lancaster University, 29 June – 1 July 2020

The annual conference of the Social History Society is the largest gathering of social and cultural historians in the UK. For more than four decades, our members have transformed historical research, exploring the many ways in which our social worlds are made, imagined, shared and shattered. We are delighted to be returning to Lancaster University, which was the intellectual home of many of the society’s founding members, in 2020.

CfP: Migrations : traces, inscriptions et textualités. Europe / Amérique latine

Mon, 11/11/2019 - 10:17

Le colloque international « Migrations : traces, inscriptions et textualités » visera à comparer les modalités d’expression et de réception d’un concept politiquement et médiatiquement omniprésent dans le débat public européen et latino-américain. Le concept de « migration-s » sera interrogé d’un point de vue à la fois synchronique et généalogique (dans le sens que Michel Foucault lui a donné).

Mon, 11/11/2019 - 10:11

Appréhendé à l’époque coloniale comme le « laboratoire de la modernité » européenne (De l’Estoile 2004, Lachenal 2010), le continent africain est aujourd’hui partie intégrante de l’histoire et de l’avenir de l’Europe mais aussi du monde. Dans son essai Afrotopia récemment traduit en allemand, l’économiste et écrivain sénégalais Felwine Sarr dénonce le mythe occidental du développement projeté sur les sociétés africaines et appelle à décoloniser les esprits de par et d’autre de la Méditerranée pour permettre aux Afriques de redevenir le « poumon spirituel du monde. » (Sarr 2019)

Work in Early Modern Italy, 1500–1800

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 13:42

Recent decades have seen many economic history books and articles published about working men and women, small and big entrepreneurs, guilds and state manufactures, farmers and journeymen, and children and citizens. Studies have been conducted both at a macro and a micro level, at a global and at a local scale and with regional and national approaches aimed at analysing cultural, social and economic phenomena associated with the world of work. Yet, there is still new ground to be covered.

The Transnational History of French Industrialisation before 1914

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 11:50

The aim of this conference will be to analyse the characteristics of 19th-century French industrialisation and to understand how these 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.

Biographies and Politics: Involvement of Jews and People of Jewish Origin in Leftist Movements in 19th and 20th Century Poland

Mon, 11/04/2019 - 11:33

The conference 'Biographies and Politics: The Involvement of Jews and People of Jewish Origin in Leftist Movements in 19th and 20th Century Poland' aims to determine the actual Jewish engagement in leftist movements in Poland in the 19th and 20th centuries from the point of view of their individual ideological choices.

Personal histories, family fortunes, and forming political identities will be analyzed using a biographical method. Thus, they will help answer the question of what drove Polish Jews to join leftist organizations.
