Workshop: Transnational Approaches to the History of Socialism before World War One, 06.- 07.12.2018, Leipzig

Category Archives: Tagung

Convenor: EUROSOC, GRR-CSN Université de Rouen – région Normandie; Centre for Area Studies, Universität Leipzig; Frankreichzentrum, Universität Leipzig

This workshop is part of a cycle of scientific meetings dedicated to the “transnational” manifestations of socialism: circulation of texts, ideas and socialist actors between different countries, cross-border work, transnational movements, socialist opinions and acting during the wars – anything that in any way goes beyond, or even erases, borders.
The workshop will begin with an introductory lecture on some general questions about the workers’ struggle, understood as a struggle in a national framework that basically aspires to become a global struggle. Then the first panel gives the opportunity to follow the work of individual actors, who relate the socialism of different countries, either through their trajectories (Kròlikowski and De Paepe) or by their writings (this is the case of Labriola). The second day of the meeting focuses on these groups of men who contribute to the implantation of socialist ideas in other countries, like the European migrants in Argentina, or who open transnational debates, like the debate of the international social democracy about the European colonial expansion.

Each participant has max. 25 minutes for presentation followed by a discussion of the individual papers of about 20 minutes. Finally, there will be a concluding comparative discussion for each of the two panels.

Two centuries after the birth of Karl Marx, European researchers show a renewed interest in socialism studies. However, this has coincided with the unprecedented decline of the traditional workers’ movement. Frequently, these studies involve an international and transnational dimension. Internationalism can be studied under this light. According to Marcel Van der Linden, to assess and
