On 18-21 September 2019, the Third Conference of the European Labour History Network (ELHN) will take place at the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam.
The European Labour History Network is a network of European researchers in (global) labour and social history. The ELHN was established in Amsterdam on 12 October 2013. The forty scholars who gathered in Amsterdam, belonging to research institutions, archives and journals based in various European countries, felt the need to increase the cooperation among labour history scholars, share knowledge and (digital) material, create a platform for future collective research, and organize conferences and seminars. The network includes Europe-based scholars (professors, post-doc and PhD researchers, post-graduate students) but seeks to connect with scholars based outside Europe. Researchers associated with ELHN are actively engaging in working groups focusing on specific themes such as factory labour, women’s labour, military labour, maritime labour and more.
