Global Labor Histories in the Francophone World

Histoires croisées du travail dans le monde francophone

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, April 20, 2021Tuesday, April 20, 2021 by João Fernandes

Summary

Since the turn of new millennium, a new global history of labor has emerged that focuses on the relationship between structures and practices of labor from at least medieval times to the present day. However, most French historians of labor continue to focus on the Hexagon and to underestimate wider European and global connections and comparisons. Similarly, specialists of slavery and post-slavery in the French colonies rarely extend their analyses to other empires or to labor history in France. This special issue seeks to bridge these gaps by inviting submissions relating labor in mainland France to labor in its colonies and/or other areas, from the early modern to the present day.

Argument

The editors of French Historical Studies seek articles for a special issue on labor in France and the francophone world in global perspective, to appear in 2024.

This special issue seeks to bridge these gaps by inviting submissions relating labor in mainland France to labor in its colonies and/or other areas, from the early modern to the present day.
