Social and Labour History News
Our aim is to bring together graduate students working on areas of the non-west, broadly conceived, whose work approaches questions of the economic from political, environmental, intellectual and cultural perspectives. In light of growing interest in the status of the economic to social scientific inquiry -- spurred by research programs from the history of capitalism to new materialism -- our objective is to foster a critical conversation about how we write such histories from world-regions outside Western Europe and North America.

Ferdinand Domela Nieuwenhuis (1846-1919), one of the founding fathers of Dutch socialism, and an importwant figure in the international socialist, anarchist and anti-militarist movement of the late 19th-early 20th century, is probably the only Dutch socialist to whom a museum is devoted. This modest but very nice museum in Heerenveen, Friesland, now is threatened with closure due to budget cuts. The museum has launched an online petition, in Dutch, but with the translation tools of nowadays you will surely be able to understand it.
