CfP: Fourth International Conference Strikes and Social Conflicts: crises of capitalism, new and old forms of protest

Fri, 10/20/2017 - 12:12


The Fourth International Conference on Strikes and Social Conflicts will be held at the University of São Paulo in July 10-13, 2018. Its purpose is to discuss the proliferation of protests in contexts of capitalist crisis. In these contexts, the articulation between labor conflicts and other social conflicts becomes more evident; Ethnic, gender and generational issues become more complex and renew interest in collective mobilizations, carrying theoretical and analytical challenges to researchers.

Weatherhead Initiative on Global History Fellowship

Sun, 10/01/2017 - 11:13

The Weatherhead Initiative on Global History (WIGH) at Harvard University identifies and supports outstanding scholars whose work responds to the growing interest in the encompassing study of global history. We seek to organize a community of scholars interested in the systematic scrutiny of developments that have unfolded across national, regional, and continental boundaries and who propose to analyze the interconnections—cultural, economic, ecological, political and demographic—among world societies.

Farewell Lecture Marcel van der Linden

Fri, 09/29/2017 - 11:55


Big changes are often the unintendend consequences of attempts to keep things as they are. This paradoxical mechanism, first described by the paleontologist Alfred Romer, is of relevance in many research areas, including the study of social movements.
In his farewell lecture Walking Fish. How Conservatuve Behaviour Generates and Procesess Radical Change Marcel van der Linden shows to which extent this theory can be applied to social and economic history.

In European Cultural Heritage Strategy for the 21st Century, the Council of Europe recognized that ‘[c]ultural heritage, in all its components, tangible and intangible, is a key factor for the refocusing of our societies on the basis of dialogue between cultures, respect for identities and diversity, and a feeling of belonging to a community of values. Cultural heritage can play a key role as a means of building, negotiating and asserting identity’ (2017, page 6).
