NLHN Workshop: Who is who in Nordic labour movements? Towards a biographical encyclopaedia of labour activists

28 november 2023 @ 14:00 - 15:30

Many people interested in a movement or an organisation often encounter lesser-known names in the sources. It can be difficult to get an overview of the importance of individuals for an organisation’s daily work or how organisations are connected through personal networks. One way to find information about individuals is to search in biographical encyclopaedias. During periods, labour movements in the Nordic countries have published bibliographic encyclopaedias, but they are far from complete. Women are often underrepresented and often cover a shorter period of history. We have invited specialists in historical biographies to discuss how a historical encyclopaedia for the Nordic labour movement could be designed based on experiences from similar projects.
