Call for Panels for the 5th European Congress on World and Global History

Following the successful and rewarding congresses held in Leipzig, Dresden, London, and Paris, the next ENIUGH Congress will take place in Budapest, hosted by the Central European University (Department of History) and Corvinus University (Karl Polanyi Research Centre at the Institute of Sociology and Social Policy), supported by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Research Centre for Humanities.

Under the overall theme “Ruptures, Empires, Revolutions” and on the occasion of the centennial of the Russian Revolution, we seek to discuss the global context and repercussions of the revolution in particular while debating the role of revolutions in global history in general. We also encourage to explore the relationship between empire and revolution and to challenge still influential narratives, like the supposedly universal trend from “empire to nation” through a comparative and global perspective on empires and imperial societies.

New Book Publication on Work from a Global Historical Perspective

A new book has been published by scholar Andrea Komlosy, Professor at the Economic and Social History Institute at the University of Vienna. The book is a study on the nature of work from the 13th to the 21st century from a global perspective.

Based within economic and social history, the study looks at the changing nature of working conditions both from their diversity and their contradictions. This reveals simultaneity across time towards the twenty-first century and challenges the Euro-centric narrative of work, placing the concept in a more nuanced global perspective as a result.

To look at the contents of the book, please see here.
