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.

Call for Papers - Erasmus Mundus Master Global Studies - A European Perspective: Deadline for the comung study year 1st June 2014

The international research-based Master’s programme “Global Studies – A European Perspective” combines perspectives, methods and theories developed in history, the social sciences, cultural as well as area studies and economics to investigate phenomena of global connectedness. We do not believe that globalisation exists as an objectively given, material reality which can be measured, but rather that we have to understand the phenomena described as globalisation as a bundle of political, economic, social and cultural projects to manage increasing transnational and transcontinental connectedness (the so-called global condition). Therefore, the multi-national classroom of the programme and the cross-over of contributions from various disciplines and universities dealing either with some of these projects and/or with their conflicts and resulting entanglements offer substantial added value to the study of processes of globalisation.

The Master’s course is offered by a Consortium of five European universities: University of Leipzig (Germany), London School of Economics and Political Science (UK), University of Roskilde (Denmark), University of Vienna (Austria) and University of Wroclaw (Poland) and six Non-European universities: Dalhousie University (Canada), Fudan University (China), Jawaharlal Nehru University (India), Macquarie University (Australia), University of California at Santa Barbara (USA), University of Stellenbosch (South Africa).
The course is modularised and integrated: It can be studied for one year at one of the European partner institutions, and for the second year at a different European university. Additionally there is the opportunity to spend one semester at one of our Non-European partner universities.
Credit recognition and transfer is based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). Depending on their mobility track graduates are awarded a joint or a double degree.
Application requirements: The Master’s Course ‘Global Studies
