Workers of the World The 15th Biennial National Labour History Conference
September 23-25, 2017
University of Queensland.
Conference theme: Workers of the World
Workers of the World The 15th Biennial National Labour History Conference Call for Papers Convened by the Brisbane Labour History Association (BLHA) on behalf of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASSLH).
Today, the Australian working class are workers of the world: in the sense that we are a predominantly immigrant working class (or the descendants of relatively recent immigrants); and in the sense that workers from so many of the world’s nations, languages and cultures have made their homes here.
The year 2017 also marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution, which had such a profound impact on the labour movement in every country, not least as a result of its internationalism.
The deadline for submitting proposals for an oral presentation or non-refereed paper is Monday July 14, 2017.
The deadline for submitting papers for peer review and possible publication is Monday May 1, 2017.
Full details on Conference and paper submission are on the conference website: www.blha.com.au
