“Convict, unfree and coerced workers, and the expansion of global empires,” Special Issue of Labour History CFP

The editors of Labour History are planning an issue that highlights the intersection of unfree, convict and coerced labour with capitalism and colonialism globally, guest edited by Vivien Miller (University of Nottingham). Editors are keen to have articles on Australia and/or New Zealand  to add to those we already expect to have on workers in the Philippines, British India, the Balkans, the Caribbean and the Middle East in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

For further information, or to submit an expression of interest, please contact the Editor of Labour History, c/- Carl Power, admin@labourhistory.org.au

Expressions of Interest are due 30 September 2021, and completed articles by 20 January 2022
