ZARAH Circular No. 1
27 November 2020

Dear colleagues, dear friends,

we would like to thank you for having joined our mailing list and warmly welcome you amongst the recipients of our ZARAH Circular No. 1. Via this newly established channel for communication, we will be sharing information on our ERC project “ZARAH: Women’s labour activism in Eastern Europe and transnationally, from the age of empires to the late 20th century” (https://zarah-ceu.org/) and initiating various kinds of collaboration.

With this first ZARAH Circular we would like to disseminate a Call for Contributions discussing “Women’s Labour Activism in Eastern Europe and Beyond, 19th and 20th Centuries”. Herewith, we aim to provide a forum for bringing together researchers from various backgrounds and to encourage mutually beneficial discussions and collaborations, resulting in a highly visible international publication. The specific steps and deadlines are outlined in the attached Call. Please feel free to disseminate the Call.

Please also feel invited to turn the attention of your colleagues to the ZARAH Circular. People interested in joining our mailing list are kindly asked to contact Ivelina Masheva, handling ZARAH’s network and public outreach, via zarah.info@ceu.edu.

Please do not hesitate to turn to us with any idea, query or information you might wish to share.

Best wishes,

Susan Zimmermann (Principal Investigator) and Lukas Neissl (Program Manager), on behalf of the entire ZARAH Team

Call for Contributions “Women’s Labour Activism in Eastern Europe and Beyond, 19th and 20th Centuries”

ZARAH Circular No. 2
12 April 2021

Dear colleagues, dear friends,

welcome to the ZARAH Circular No. 2! The ZARAH Circulars function as a channel of communication, sharing information on our ERC project “Women’s labour activism in Eastern Europe and transnationally, from the age of empires to the late 20th century” and related activities, and initiating and informing about various kinds of collaboration. Today we would like to share two pieces of information.

  • In the previous ZARAH Circular we had disseminated a call for contributions for an international workshop/conference on “Women’s Labour Activism in Eastern Europe and Beyond, 19th and 20th Centuries” aimed at bringing together researchers from various backgrounds and encouraging mutually beneficial discussions and collaborations, resulting in a highly visible international publication. We received an impressive number of innovative and exiting paper proposals and are looking forward to the next stage of this collaborative project. We are excited to publish the attached draft program of the conference that will take place on 14-16 October 2021 at the Central European University in Vienna. The event brings together scholars with diverse backgrounds, at varying stages of their careers in leading research institutions in Europe and beyond.
  • In the academic year 2020/2021 we have published two series of entries on the ZARAH Blog: Blog Series I: Finding Women in the Sources and Blog Series II: Putting Activists Centre Stage. The introductions to the blog series and the individual entries give insight into the process and various dimensions of research on the history of women’s labour activism. The two series published so far discuss opportunities and limitations of different types of primary material and illustrate how a focus on individual activists’ careers and life stories can help to develop our understanding of the history of women’s labour activism. We hope that the ZARAH Blog sparks interest in the history of women’s labour activism, and that the considerations and examples on how to do such research can serve as inspiration for scholars, students and activists alike.

Please feel invited to turn the attention of your colleagues to the ZARAH Circular. People interested in joining our mailing list are kindly asked to contact Ivelina Masheva, handling ZARAH’s network and public outreach, via zarah.info@ceu.edu.

Please do not hesitate to turn to us with any idea, query or information you might wish to share.

Best wishes,

Susan Zimmermann (Principal Investigator) and Lukas Neissl (Program Manager), on behalf of the entire ZARAH Team
