The sole remaining archive of a respectable size of the Spanish Civil War is housed at the IISH. It concerns the papers of the anarchist trade union CNT/FAI (1934-1939), that had a large following.

Where are the libraries that were looted by the Nazis? Identification and restoration : a work in progress
The extent to which book collections were looted by the Nazi forces during the second world war was underestimated for many years. Just in France, at least five million books and graphic documents were stolen from their legitimate owners: ministries, Slavic libraries, leading figures of radical circles, socialists and communists, freemasons. From 1942, million of Jewish families are impacted by the spoliations aiming to destroy their culture.

Offre d’allocation doctorale du Comité pour l’histoire de la Poste
Sujet : Les activités sociales à la Poste au XXe siècle
Papers are sought for a conference at Oxford University on 8th September 2017 that will explore the lives and experiences of servants beyond their domestic workplaces. Domestic service, in its various forms, has long provided one of the most significant sources of employment for men, women and children around the world. Existing studies have successfully explored the servant experience in their place of work, yet contributions made by servants outside the home – to social, cultural, economic and political life – have been little explored.

Migration from the Middle East and North Africa to Europe has reached mass proportions in the last few years. This is only the most recent development in a long history of population movements into, out of and within the Continent. Beginning with the story of European migration to other parts of the world, the largest mass migration in history, that took on immense proportions in the nineteenth century, the lecture goes on to discuss the repeated experiences of forced population exchanges, flight, and "ethnic cleansing" in Europe in the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.

Modern British Studies at Birmingham invites proposals for panels showcasing new research on all aspects of British history from the 18th century to the present. At a moment when many of the core strands of modern society, culture, politics, and economics have been called into question, it is time to explore how we make sense of Britain’s past and the value of thinking historically in public life.
We will host our Second Conference 5-7 July 2017
In 2018, Scottish Literary Review will publish a special issue in relation to the Carnegie-funded project ‘The People’s Voice: Scottish Political Poetry, Song and the Franchise, 1832-1918’, guest-edited by Catriona MacDonald, Kirstie Blair and Michael Shaw. The special issue aims to widen the remit of this project beyond its primary focus on Reform and franchise verse, and to reflect more broadly on the connections between politics and poetry and song cultures, within Scotland and potentially beyond, in this period.
