Labouring Feminism and Feminist Working-Class History in Europe and Beyond 
International Conference 28-31 August 2008 in Stockholm

In September 2005 the first 'Labouring feminism conference' was held at the Munk Centre, University of Toronto. We have the great pleasure to invite everyone to participate in continuing this initiative to focus on labour and gender from a historical perspective in Stockholm in August 2008. The aim of the conference is to bring together a wide variety of feminist scholars working on various aspects of labour history, broadly defined, to share their research, to carry on a dialogue across generational, theoretical, national and disciplinary boundaries and to continue the debate on how to re-conceptualize working-class history in
more inclusive ways.

The conference is structured around five overlapping and inter-related themes:
* Gendering working-class history
* Labour feminism and female activism
* Women and work - paid and unpaid
* Bodies - trade and consumption - local, regional and international perspectives
* Cultural and ideological representations of gender related to the above topics
