We invite papers that examine examples of antagonisms, solidarities, and syntheses between anarchism and syndicalism on one hand, and Marxist and nationalist currents on the other. The papers should address historical movements, rather than intellectual history, narrowly conceived; they should analyze intersections, not parallels or apparent similarities between different currents; and explore the complex relations and overlaps between anarchist, Marxist, and nationalist movements. Case studies should focus on the colonial and post-colonial world (Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean).
Possible lines of inquiry include interactions in the following areas:
- national liberation and anti-colonial struggles
- anti-imperialist networks and alliances
- agrarian struggles
- international labor solidarity, trade unionism, as well as activities in state-run unions
- struggles against colonial and neo-colonial racial oppression
- interracial, multiethnic, local/diasporic solidarities
- student and worker alliances
-underground networks and struggles
This CFP is for two planned panels to be held at the European Social Science History Conference in Vienna, Austria, April 23-26, 2014.
Please send abstracts (250 words) to the panel organizers, Steven Hirsch (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Lucien van der Walt (email@example.com) by March 1, 2013.
