2022 marks the 40th anniversary of the highly influential 'Europe and the People Without History', by Eric R. Wolf. Inspired by its theoretical insights the panel analyses diverse contemporary contexts of local-global connectivity, processes of exclusion, and social organisation
Europe and the People Without History is a scholarly classic. The panel contributions will take up key issues and points of investigation central to the insights and ideas in the book to understand present day relationships and connections between local arenas, processes of exclusion, global modes and forms of production, and economic and political organisation. We welcome contributions that take as a point of departure research questions in the spirit of the book, such as; How do contemporary dynamics of global modes and forms of production impact and shape local processes of social exclusion? Who are the present day People without History and what role do they play in global forms of accumulation and production? In rural contexts, how do global modes of production, and organisational forms of excluded groups, challenge and change each other? And what can present day processes of exclusion as driven by global economic and political processes, tell us about relationships between anthropology and geography? We welcome original contributions with explicit focus on dynamics between rural and global political and economic development and processes of exclusion, power relations between political-economic classes and different social groups in rural contexts, and the formalization and informalization of global connections and processes of exclusion.
