Call for papers

The members of the Workgroup “Worlds of Labor” – Brazilian History Association (GT “Mundos do Trabalho” – Associação Nacional de História – ANPUH) have the pleasure to invite researchers to submit presentation proposals for the III International “Worlds of Labor” Conference, to be held jointly with the VII National Workshop of Labor History. The event will take place November 26th – 29th 2014 at Universidade do Estado da Bahia (UNEB), Salvador. Presentation proposals must be based on empirical research, theoretical and methodological debates and assessments of the academic production that enable the dialogue with others interested in similar themes.

 The Workgroup “Worlds of Labor” – an official section of the Brazilian History Association – has been playing a fundamental role in the diffusion of the increasing Brazilian labor historiography and in fomenting domestic and international inter-exchanges. Since its creation, in 2001, the WG promotes thematic conferences inside ANPUH bi-annual national symposiums and, in alternate years, workshops for researchers in the field. In 2010, the I International “Worlds of Labor” Conference was held jointly to the V National Workshop of Labor History in Florianópolis at Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC). In 2012, the Centro de Pesquisa e Documentação de História Contemporânea do Brasil / Fundação Getúlio Vargas (CPDOC/FGV), held the II International “Worlds of Labor” Conference and the VI National Workshop of Labor History in Rio de Janeiro.

 As in previous events, our aim is to provide for the presentation of research taking place in a variety of academic disciplines about labor history in Brazil and in other parts of the world. We intend to foment the collaboration between researchers on the field and the discussion of the current agenda for historical studies on the worlds of labor, both at the domestic and at the global fronts. We expect that proposed papers will debate the worlds of labor as broadly and comprehensively as possible.

The VII National Workshop of Labor History and the III International “Worlds of Labor” Conference will comprise roundtables and coordinated sessions. The round table will be composed by invited national and international specialists. The coordinated sessions are open to registration, and proposals can be made either for individual presentations or for complete sessions (with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 4 participants). Proposals based on interdisciplinary and inter-institutional connections, as well as those involving different countries and regions are particularly welcome.
