International Conference „Social Policies and the Welfare State in the Global South

An international group of historians and social scientists from Argentina, Chile, Australia, several European countries, the United States and Canada gathered on September 14th and 15th at Universität Bremen to analyze and discuss social policies and the welfare state in the Global South. A transnational and entangled perspective was constitutive to the majority of the presentations which shed new light on hitherto understudied aspects of social politics.

The conference gave proof of the importance of the transfer of knowledge (both from the South to the North and between countries of the Global South), was further able to show the heterogeneity of the actors involved and raised further methodological questions. The topics presented in four panels ranged from colonial social policies and their repercussions on Europe, the importance of International Organizations and processes of judicial codification as well as child labor laws in Latin America to the role of Chilean physicians in the establishment of social medicine programs in Mozambique. Keynote speakers professors Anne-Emanuelle Birn (University of Toronto) and Christoph Conrad (Université de Génève) focused on larger research projects in their presentations. While Birn delved back into the beginnings and further development of South-South-cooperation in health since the early 20th century, Conrad highlighted the possible future of social policies by assessing the global challenge of ageing.

The conference was organized by Delia González de Reufels and Teresa Huhle (Latin American History, Universität Bremen) in cooperation with the SOCIUM, the Research Center on Equality and Social Policy of this university. A publication will follow.

2nd meeting of the ADLAF working group “Latin American History in Global Perspective”

At its second meeting, the working group “Latin American History in Global Perspective” will deal with the role of experts in the modernization efforts of Latin American states in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The production of expert knowledge took place in transnational settings characterized by power asymmetries, different national academic traditions, political circumstances and multiple histories of professionalization. Latin American societies were not mere receptors of North American and European expertise. Latin American experts actively took part in transnational transfers of knowledge and external expertise was always subject to complex adaptations in local contexts.

The working group’s second meeting will be held on 24-26 January 2013 at the Freie University Berlin, Institute for Latin American Studies. It will bring together the contributions by its members to the theme “Expert Knowledge in Latin American History. Local, Transnational and Global Perspectives (Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries)”. Furthermore we encourage the participation of historians of Latin America and other world regions whose research projects focus on expert knowledge.

First meeting of the working group „Latin American History in Global Perspective“ in January 2011

Aiming to observe Latin American History in its global interdependence, the working group was founded in 2009 under the roof of ADLAF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Deutsche Lateinamerikaforschung). Latin America is to be analyzed within the context of important global developments, processes of change and experiences since the mid-19th century. In the working group, counter movements, deliberate segregation and alternative concepts that are also characteristic for Latin America and thus undermine or even prevent global interdependences, should also be a topic.

The working group especially addresses historians and will constitute itself at the first meeting on January, 27th and 28th 2011 at the University of Bremen.

This meeting will be concerned with developing a work program for the group and identifying further possibilities for cooperation and networking. Furthermore already existing projects, as well as research projects that include perspectives in Global History will be introduced and discussed. Explicitly welcome are projects that examine the issues and difficulties of such an analysis or involve methodological considerations. ADLAF supports the meeting financially and it is open for all members of ADLAF.
