Talented interns for the Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations, 1500-2000 - IISG-KNAW - Amsterdam
The International Institute of Social History is looking for talented interns for the Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations, 1500-2000
The Global Collaboratory on the History of Labour Relations’s goal is to chart global developments in labour relations since 1500. The Collaboratory has developed an extensive taxonomy with which all labour relations, from work for the household to slave labour, can be classified. Based on this taxonomy, the Collaboratory strives to collect data about labour relations for as many countries as possible in the reference years 1500, 1650, 1800, 1900 and 2000. For more information, see https://datasets.iisg.amsterdam/dataverse/labourrelations.
- The most important task is creating and publicizing a dataset with data regarding labour relations in the United Kingdom and/or France.
- After a brief period of research into the history of labour in the United Kingdom and/or France, sources will be selected with help and advice from the internship supervisors; reference years will be chosen and datasets of labour relations will be constructed.
- The internship will take place under supervision from prof. dr. Karin Hofmeester and Daan Jansen, BA.
