DFG Grant for Nina Schneider

We congratulate Nina Schneider (Alumna /Dept. of History and Sociology) whose application to the DFG for the project “Child Labour Opponents and their Campaigns in the Americas in Global Perspective, 1888-1938" was granted (Sachmittelbeihilfe).

“The project aims to provide a history of diverse, locally grounded, yet nationally and often globally entangled, child labour opponents their motivations, and campaigning in the Americas in global perspective”, summarizes Nina Schneider. “It focuses on the turn of the twentieth century, the heyday of a struggle for the enduring federal regulation of child labour in many parts of the world. The project’s key outcome (monograph) will be the first history of early twentieth century anti-child labour activism in the Americas in global perspective, narrated through the biographies of 10 diverse locally grounded yet nationally and globally contextualised child labour opponents.”

Nina is a Senior Research Fellow at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research (KHK/GCR21) in Duisburg. The KHK/GCR21 is the youngest and the last of ten supported Käte Hamburger Kollegs. Founded by Prof. Claus Leggewie and directed by Prof. Sigrid Quack, its current research focuses on four broad themes: 1) pathways and mechanisms of global cooperation and 2) polycentric governance (2018-2021), and 3) critique, justification and legitimacy in global cooperation, and 4) global cooperation in the context of plural conceptions of world order (2022-2024). The GCR21 analyses and compares four pressing policy fields: climate change, peacebuilding, migration, and internet.

Nina was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Zukunftskolleg from 02/2013 until 01/2015.

We congratulate her and wish her all the best!
