CfP: Family Economy et Feminist Labour history WG 2019

Tue, 07/10/2018 - 12:16

Feminist labour history has for a long time been engaged in making women’s work visible and to integrate women’s work in households and families in the larger narratives of the history of work and the history of labour. More recent- ly, the economic history and the history of the family have been deeply renewed by studies integrating the gender dimension and focusing on the household economy, a quite neglected issue until present.

CfP: Comparing Colonialism: Beyond Modern Exceptionalism

Sat, 07/07/2018 - 12:05

Colonial expansion is a common, nearly universal phenomenon in human history. Though colonialism has shaped the modern world in many ways, it is not limited to modernity. Conquering foreign lands and subjugating other people(s) are basic processes in the formation of empires and states, and they existed long before the modern era. This interdisciplinary conference, hosted by the Department of Social Sciences at the University of Basel, seeks to explore varieties of colonialism throughout history and to uncover their common features.

A Statue to Jules Durand

Mon, 07/02/2018 - 13:58

A Statue to Jules Durand

Les Amis de Jules Durand is an association dedicated to the memory of Jules DURAND, a social activist sentenced to death for what he was, the secretary of Le Havre’s Coal Porters’ Union, a CGT affiliate at a time when there was only one central labor federation in France. Durand was sentenced to capital punishment on November 25, 1910. At last, 100 years after the injustice, on 15 June a full-fledged public rehabilitation has been organized and his memory has been honoured as it should.
