17-18 September 2015
This symposium sets out to re-think histories of labour rights within the context of economic internationalism. It suggests that there is now a need to broaden and re-think the field of labour rights history and that one way to do this is by focusing on the global response to the problem of coolie trade, what became known as the 'coolie question,' in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Abstracts should be sent to Sophie Loy-Wilson by April 30th 2015.
