This three day international conference will examine ‘race’ and ‘labour’, two of the great mobilising forces which shaped Germany in the modern world, exploring their interaction in a wide range of contexts. The chosen timeframe is broad, stretching from the early nineteenth century to questions concerning labour and race in the Third Reich and post-war Germany.
The conference will begin on Thursday 27 March with a key note lecture by Professor Richard Overy, University of Exeter, “No Stab in the Back!” Race, Labour and the NS-Regime under the Bombs, 1940-45.
Over the following two days, six panels of scholars will explore Constructions of Race and Labour, Colonialism, Racial Ideology and Social Practice, Forced Labour and Industry, Gender and Family, and Memory and Politics.
The delegate fee is £20, to cover the cost of a drinks reception, conference lunch and refreshments. Places are limited and will be offered on a first come first served basis. Book here: https://www2.bbk.ac.uk/pearsinstitute/
