For labour and for suffrage! Histories of labour movements and the struggles for democracy in Europe and beyond
november 14 @ 9:00 - 17:00
Celebrations of women’s suffrage have often excluded the role of the labour movement, or the labour movement has been regarded as an obstacle to cross-class cooperation in this struggle.
Despite the fact that we today celebrate international women’s day, originally initiated by women in the labour movement to campaign for universal suffrage, very little is known about the role of local, national and international labour movements during struggles for democracy. During this symposium historians from Iceland, India, Canada, the UK and Sweden will discuss the struggles of labour movements for democracy.
The Symposium is held in co-operation between ARAB and Stockholm University, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond.O
OBS! Symposiet hålls på engelska.
