International Research Center "Work and Human Lifecycle in Global History"

The IGK conducts fundamental research on the subject of work with a dual focus on the concept and the performance of work. Although the end of the work society is occasionally proclaimed in western industrial societies, a look at ther societies already shows that such a point of view is based on a very restricted definition of work as gainful, wage labor. A trans-cultural perspective and definitio

From 5-7 September 2023, the final conference of the COST Action "Worlds of Related Coercions in Work (WORCK)" will take place in Prague!

Moving on beyond a research agenda that seeks to posit a dichotomy between free and unfree labour or design a spectrum of scalar shades of coercion between the opposite poles of freedom and unfreedom, the WORCK network has attempted to understand how practices and processes of labour coercion can illuminate social practices (and vice versa) at specific historical junctures and in various geographical settings.

The final conference seeks to bring together scholars conducting empirical research on such practices and processes, as well as on the perspectives of historical actors and how they were entangled in social asymmetries. We welcome submissions from participants at any stage of their career, including doctoral students and independent scholars. Our aim is to attract researchers from the entire spectrum of social sciences and humanities who study labour coercion with historical perspectives in a variety of disciplines.

Abstracts for panels or individual papers can be submitted until 1 February 2023.

Richard Drayton
Europe's hinterlands and its Oceanic empires

European economic and colonial expansion have usually been examined only through the
imperial histories of competing maritime nations like Portugal, Spain, the Netherlands,
France and England. But Extra-European expansion, as has been increasingly illuminated
by new research, depended on the hinterlands of Europe for inputs, especially copper,
iron, silver, naval stores, capital, and for the sale of exotic colonial imports such as
sugar, coffee, to***co and textiles. Cities like Antwerp, Hamburg and Bordeaux were
hinges linking overseas colonies with new agrarian, mining and industrial frontiers far
from the ocean. Mediaeval and early modern regional economies in central Europe, built
around environmental facts of seas, rivers and mountains, created an infrastructure
which made possible the Atlantic empires, which reciprocally transformed the integration
of Europe creating a new Euro-global geography of work and consumption
interdependence.

Three Faces of Capitalist Labor: Uncovering the Hidden Ties among Gender, Race and Class - CTB 01/06/2022

Should we view contemporary anti-racist, anti-imperialist, and feminist struggles as unrecognised labor struggles? Nancy Fraser uncovers the hidden ties among gender, race, and class by linking them to the three forms of capitalist labor: exploited labor, dispossessed labor, and domestic labor.

Lecture by Klaus Weber and Florian Schwabe entitled

Automation and Antisocial Behaviour
Internal Cleavages in GDR Industries and the Decline of ‘Red Fordism’ (1970s-80s)

During the 1980s, numerically controlled machine tools and robots deeply transformed industrial production. Automation caused joblessness and more competition among workers. Many considered this to be a phenomenon of western capitalist economies only. However, a digital revolution was launched behind the Iron Curtain, too. On export markets – the only source for ‘hard’ currency – GDR-made machine tools were competing with western products. From the late 70s, the GDR therefore diverted huge resources into modernizing these sectors of its economy, causing social tensions and stressing ‘Red Fordism’ to its limits. In sectors that remained neglected, working conditions worsened. In modernizing sectors, automation demanded even more efforts from skilled workers to maintain their social status. The less skilled and less motivated were not simply dismissed. Socialism demanded they be kept in the workforce, even if many were shoved into low- skill, low-pay and low-prestige jobs (bull-sh*t jobs – let’s name it). This caused resignation, drinking at the workplace and ‘Bummelei’ (idling), a behaviour shunned by the more skilled colleagues as antisocial, and punishable at that time. If automation in the West caused a cleavage between those in and those out of work, automation in the East caused a cleavage within the workforce. In both worlds, it did not necessarily bring a brighter future, but ‘subjectivation’ of labour, more competition, and social segregation. Even in the East, the ground was prepared for the (neo)liberal mind-set that held sway after the end of state socialism.

Florian Schwabe is doctoral researcher at Europa-Universität Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), Faculty of Cultural and Social Sciences.
