Zoom Meeting

During the conference, we want to focus on the phenomenon of Global Work and target questions of Global Entanglements: How do we contribute to an entangled history of work and workers? How do we contextualize our national histories? How do we address issues like (post-) colonialism and decolonization? How do we keep up with contemporary discourses and stay relevant for our audiences and for societies?
