1st Conference of the European Labour History Network (ELHN)

14 – 16 December 2015, Torino/Turin (Italy)
Conference language: English

The European Labour History Network (ELHN) is pleased to announce its first
conference from 14-16 December 2015 at the University of Turin facilitated and
hosted by Stefano Musso (President of the Societΰ Italiana di Storia del
lavoro/SISLav – Italian Society of Labour History).
The ELHN was founded in October 2013 in Amsterdam as a network of labour
historians in order to bring together scholars with different institutional
backgrounds (institutes, associations, archives, journals, study groups,
individual researchers, etc.) and serve as an umbrella organization for smaller
working groups with specific topics and tasks.
In accordance with the decisions of the foundation meeting of the ELHN, the
first conference of the network will be structured differently to other
comparable scholarly conferences and will also provide the possibility to
gather colleagues from all over Europe in order to work on specific common
projects concerning European Labour History. Therefore, the main part of the
conference will be dedicated to ELHN Working Groups that will themselves decide
on their specific agenda during the conference. The individual working groups
will be responsible for drafting their own agenda during the conference. For
further information please contact the coordinators of the respective working
