Land Ownership and Conflict in a Global Context: Transfer, Adaptation and Translation of Normative Systems

Mon, 02/13/2017 - 11:07

For many societies, land ownership is the definitive step in freedom from slavery, exploitation and colonial domination, meaning land is one of the, if not the, most important commodity in the world. Those who have it fiercely guard it whilst those who do not have it find extralegal ways to access it. Contested land is an issue found in contemporary legal issues as well as in every other historical period and region, making it an issue pertinent globally. This workshop will address several key areas of land ownership and conflict in a global context.

CfP: On the Matter of Blackness in Europe: Transnational Perspectives

Mon, 02/13/2017 - 11:04

The presence of Black people in Europe dates back to the early medieval period. Since then, Black people in Europe have contributed significantly to the archives of radical Black epistemologies in various ways. Within this contribution, distinct points of departures exist with regards to socio-historical conditions and divergences of anti-blackness in European nation states. However, academic scholarship on the articulations and formations of Blackness in Europe have gained more attention in the last decades.

Invisible Histories talks

Fri, 02/10/2017 - 14:01

Our free Invisible Histories talks will start up again in March – Wednesdays at 2pm:

15 March Trevor Fisher Reclaiming the Blanketeers
March 2017 sees the 200th anniversary of the March of the Blanketeers, probably the first attempt at a protest march from a provincial city to Westminster. Now largely obscure, the precedent once established has been used ever since, and the organisers had devised a tactic which deserves to be put into the spotlight for its continuing importance.

Project for the Digitization of CNT/FAI Archives at IISH

Fri, 02/03/2017 - 16:42

€450.000 for the Digitization of CNT/FAI Archives

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. In Spain and in all countries, like the Netherlands, from where volunteers joined the International Brigades, many surviving relatives are searching for their lost family members.

Where are the libraries that were looted by the Nazis? Identification and restoration : a work in progress

Mon, 01/30/2017 - 12:59

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.

CfP: Beyond the home: new histories of domestic servants

Tue, 01/24/2017 - 14:37

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.
