Liverpool University Press will be publishing Labour History: a Journal of Labour and Social History from 2019

Liverpool University Press is delighted to announce it will be publishing Labour History: a Journal of Labour and Social History on behalf of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History from 2019.

Labour History, which has been appearing twice yearly since 1962, is the premier outlet for refereed, scholarly articles in the fields of social and labour history in Australasia. The interdisciplinary nature of labour history, and its acceptance of less traditional sources, including folklore and oral testimony, make it a fascinating field, alive to past and present social justice issues.

Labour History also publishes essays, reviews, and memoirs that reflect the involvement of labour historians in the making of history. It examines issues such as labour politics, trade unions, management labour practices, co-operatives, gender and ethnicity.

The first issue under the new publishing agreement will be published in May 2019.

Clare Hooper, Head of Journals at Liverpool University Press, said:

“Labour History is an important venue for labour history research and LUP will help the journal further expand, building on our longstanding commitment to publishing in the field through Labour History ReviewHistorical Studies in IRTheory & Struggle and the Studies in Labour History book series”.
