The Institute of Historical Studies at the University of Bremen has launched its own podcast. In the interview series, which former CRC member Simon Gerards Iglesias was instrumental in developing, members of the Institute's staff talk about relevant and at the same time illustrative areas of their research work.
Gerards Iglesias himself is the first guest in the series: In a conversation with Institute Managing Director Imke Sturm-Martin, he sheds light on how the workers' protests in Argentina, which were violently suppressed in early 1919, are connected to the founding of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) shortly afterwards and what role the ILO subsequently played in the development of Argentine social policy.
Simon Gerards Iglesias is an economic and social historian researching the history of Latin America at the University of Bremen. He was a member of SFB 1342 from 2019 to the end of 2021, where he conducted research in the now completed project B02 Emergence, Expansion, and Transformation of the Welfare State in the Cono Sur in Exchange with (Southern) Europe (1850–1990). His dissertation deals with transnational history and the relationship between Argentina and the International Labour Organisation.
