WORKERS’ INTERNATIONALISM BEFORE 1914

Conference: “Workers’ Internationalism before 1914”
15-16 February 2014, School of History, University of East Anglia, Norwich, NR4 7TJ, UK

Call for Papers
2014 is the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the International Working Men’s Association in 1864. It is also the 125th anniversary of the foundation of the Socialist International in 1889, and the centenary of the outbreak of the war which precipitated the collapse of that International.

To mark these anniversaries, UEA School of History, in conjunction with the journal Socialist History and the Institute of Working Class History (Chicago) are organising a conference on “Workers’ internationalism before 1914”. We are inviting proposals for papers on any aspect of the subject.

Themes might include:
• the historical experience of the internationals and their affiliated organisations
• cross-border labour organisation
• resistance to nationalist politics in multi-national states
• transnational and international solidarity
• migration and the transplantation of labour movement culture
• international causes celèbres
• political asylum and revolutionary exile
• speaking tours of socialist leaders

We are seeking papers of 5000 to 10000 words on various experiences or aspects of workers’ internationalism before 1914, to be presented at the seminar. Selected papers will be published in 2014 in a special issue of Socialist History devoted to the subject.

Queries and proposals for papers should be submitted by 1 October 2013 to internationalism1914@gmail.com. Attendance at the conference will be free of charge.

INTERNATIONAL INITIATIVE FOR THE PROMOTION OF POLTICAL ECONOMY TRAINING WORKSHOP IN MARXIST POLITICAL ECONOMY

Following the success of previous Training Workshops, the International Initiative for the Promotion of Political Economy will run a one-day introductory training workshop in Marxist Political Economy on 6 November 2013 at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London, the day before the start of the annual Historical Materialism Conference (also at SOAS).

We are seeking an audience of engaged participants, including undergraduate, postgraduate students, junior academics and activists, who have a particular interest in acquainting themselves with the basic principles of Marxian political economy.

As this is an introductory workshop, it will assume no prior knowledge and will be led by Simon Mohun and Alfredo Saad-Filho.

If you wish to attend the workshop, please send your name and occupation to Elisa Van Waeyenberge <ew23@soas.ac.uk> before 15th of October 2013.

Alfred Russel Wallace

Alfred Russel Wallace

ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE: EXPLORER, EVOLUTIONIST, PUBLIC INTELLECTUAL

By Ted Benton

This new book is a contribution to the reassessment of Wallace’s legacy in the centenary year of his death. So far media coverage has focused on Wallace’s independent foundation of the theory of evolution by natural selection, and the attempts by the elite circle around Darwin to obscure Wallace’s achievement. Wallace is now fast achieving the credit that is due to him, but this book takes us much further. It shows that Wallace went on to make further major contributions to evolutionary theory and other aspects of the life sciences and, for more than half a century after the evolutionary breakthrough, became a prominent voice on the left.

From his early years he was inspired by the socialism of Robert Owen, and later was a leading campaigner for land nationalisation, Irish independence, women’s emancipation and for socialism. His thinking on all these topics was bold and original, and has much to offer for us today. It is likely that other contributions to the centenary celebrations will ignore most of this!

The book can be ordered from books@siriscientificpress.co.uk
