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

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 09:38

The involvement of the Jews of Poland in leftist political movements in 19th- and 20th-century Poland is a complex and challenging topic. Bundism or Labor Zionism openly combined Jewishness with leftist ideology. The situation is more complicated with actors of Jewish background in non-Jewish organizations, who at least partly did not consider themselves to be Jewish but were regarded as such by others. On another level, we cannot speak unequivocally about “Polish Jews” or “Poland” in the imperial era of the long nineteenth century, as other affiliations were also possible.

CfP: A minor history? The Western communists, anti-imperialism and decolonisation in Africa

Mon, 03/25/2019 - 09:04

Recent years have seen a proliferation of studies on the relations between the communist movement and anti-colonial liberation movements, on the encounters between the ‘socialist camp’ and the Third World, and more generally on communism’s influence on decolonisation and the formation of the postcolonial world. These studies have adopted global- and international-history perspectives which are ever less confined to the classic themes of debates within the Comintern or Soviet strategies during the Cold War.

CfP: The Downfall of Communism in East-Central and Southern Europe: An Attempt of Comparative Perspective

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 09:56

In 1989, 30 years had passed since the fall of communism – a system installed in Central and Southern Europe following World War II. The changes which took place in 1989–1991 were the beginning of a political transformation in the states of Central and Southern Europe as well as in the Soviet Union. The triple transformation encompassed the reconstruction of free market economy, parliamentary democracy, and – in the case of the former Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, or Czechoslovakia – state building.

Die Komintern – eine Bewegung in Moskau für die Welt?

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 09:53

Vor 100 Jahren wurde in Moskau die Kommunistischen Internationale gegründet, jene Organisation, deren erklärtes Ziel es war, die Fackel der proletarischen Weltrevolution in alle Länder zu tragen. Die strategischen Ziele, die die Kominternführung der internationalen kommunistischen Bewegung vorgab, wurden jedoch nicht erreicht. Dr. Wladislaw Hedeler, Manfred Mugrauer (Wien) und Prof. Alexander Vatlin (Moskau) stellen die Gründungsmitglieder vor und skizzieren deren selbstlose Versuche, die Revolution in den verschiedensten Regionen der Welt zu organisieren.

CfP: Thinking the city through work. Blurring boundaries of production and reproduction in the age of digital capitalism

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 09:48

This call for paper invites contributions that think the city through the lens of work. The digitisation of urban economies and everyday urban life makes the distinction between work, home and leisure increasingly difficult. When food delivery riders use their private bikes to work or hosts rent their home in order to make a living, the spatial separation of the domestic and the market, once seen as clear-cut, now seem to blur or at times, even disappear altogether.

CfP: 39th Meeting of the Portuguese Association of Economic and Social History: Circulations from Local to Global

Mon, 03/18/2019 - 09:03

Mobility is a key problem in Economic and Social History. Regardless of the period under analysis, people circulate, carrying with them commodities, capital, ideas, languages, traditions. They circulate to survive, to trade, to explore, to conquer, to migrate, and also for leisure. These constant circulations are at the origin of many interactions, impacts, conflicts, changes and resistances, as well as many social, economic, institutional and cultural transformations.
