Contingency in the work force is aligned with gender, even in occupations requiring extensive education and credentials. Women predominate or are disproportionately represented among adjunct faculty and non-tenure-track faculty in universities, and among the underpaid freelancers and contract workers in the digital economy.
The University of Michigan Library's Special Collections Research Center invites applications for fellowships for research in residence. We will award William P. Heidrich Research Fellowships to support research projects that require substantial on-site use of the Joseph A. Labadie Collection during calendar year 2019. The fellowships will provide funds for on-site research on any topic that is supported by the Labadie Collection.

The recent rise in problems of immigration and race are of long historical standing. During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Europe, increased colonial expansion, industrialization, economic inequality, and nationalism severely tested the assumptions of a shared social fabric. In this, the visual arts performed a key function by amplifying or mitigating racial and ethnic difference.
The workshop aims at gathering young researchers who address in their work the political, social and cultural transformations of the “postwar moment” in Europe. The periodization scheme of the second thirty years’ war imposed 1945 as a clear historiographical divide and watershed after the Holocaust. Consequently, 1945 and the aftermath of the war have long been featured as either prequel for what was to follow or as an extension of the history of World War II.
