Thursday, 28. November 2019, Room B63, CSSGJ Annual Lecture: The International Labour Organisation at hundred: achievements, problems and prospects

Event description
The Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice invite you to the annual lecture on Thursday 28 November.
This year the Centre is delighted to host Professor Marcel van der Linden, the former director of research at the International Institute of Social History based in Amsterdam, as the keynote speaker. On the centenary of the International Labour Organisation, this timely lecture will probe into organisation's achievements, problems and prospects.
Professor Marcel van der Linden is widely recognised in the field for his pioneering Global labour history approach, developed in numerous publications since the 1990s. Global labour history is a new paradigm in the labour studies that aspires to transcend both traditional approaches to labour history and the "new labour history" developed in the 1960s by scholars such as Eric Hobsbawm and Edward Palmer Thompson. This is achieved by centring the attention on all people who through their work have built the modern world, and this includes not merely wage labourers, but also chattel slaves, sharecroppers, housewives, the self-employed, and many other groups. Focusing on the labour relations of and between these people the perspective expands the horizons of agency by viewing constituents of those groups as individuals but also as members of households, networks and other contexts. Global labour history covers the last five centuries and all continents. It compares developments in several parts of the world and attempts to reveal intercontinental connections and interactions.
The extensive list of Marcel van der Linden’s recent publications include authored titles Transnational Labour History. Explorations (2003), Workers of the World. Essays toward a Global Labour History (2008), Western Marxism and the Soviet Union. A Survey of Critical Theories and Debates since 1917 (2009), as well as co-edited volumes Humanitarian Intervention and Changing Labour Relations: Long-Term Consequences of the Abolition of the Slave Trade (2011), 1968 — A View of the Protest Movements 40 Years After, from a Global Perspective (2009), Beyond Marx: Theorising the Global Labour Relations of the Twenty-First Century (2013), Capitalism: The Resurgence of a Historical Concept (2016), On Coerced Labour: Work and Compulsion after Chattel Slavery (2016), among others.
