Minderheiten und Arbeit im 19. und 20. Jahrhundert
Aspekte einer vielschichtigen Beziehungsgeschichte
There are few topics that divide opinions in social contexts so much as "minorities" and "work". The current interdisciplinary anthology focuses on this complex history of relationships and explores processes of minority inclusion and exclusion in the history of work throughout the 19th and 20th century. The different methodological approaches developed by the junior researchers show how productive the perspective of minority research can be for explorations in the history of work.
