Request from Labour & Working Class History network

by E Wayne Ross on May 31, 2005

From the Working-Class studies mailing list:

To round off the programme for the Labour and Working Class History
network for the European Social Science History Conference, we are
looking for one or two papers on workers’ organisations in the US
(1940s – 1970s) and for one or two papers on global aspects of labour
relations (these papers could cover long term developments in labour
relations; one of the papers in the session covers labour recruitment
in Africa 1500-1900). As the extended deadline for pre- registration
is June 1st, we ask those interested to take part in these sessions
to contact the network chairs a.s.a.p. (at LHV@iisg.NL).

The sixth European Social Science History Conference will take place
in The Hague, the Netherlands, on 22-25 March 2006. The ESSHC brings
together scholars interested in explaining historical phenomena using
the methods of the social sciences. The conference is characterized
by a lively exchange in many small groups, rather than by formal
plenary sessions. The Conference is organised in a large number of
networks which cover a certain topic (e.g. criminal justice, family,
social inequality, economics). Sessions and papers on Labour and
Working Class History can be proposed to the chairs of the Labour
History Network

How to propose a paper: pre-register through the conference website,
indicating ‘Labour” as your network of preference. How to propose a
panel session: pre-register for 3 or 4 participants. Add full names
and addresses of all paper authors, and of a chair and/or
commentator. Most sessions choose the panel format, but other types
of sessions are encouraged. The deadline for sending in abstracts is
1 June 2005.
