This collection includes content from the three LUP journals on Labour History: Historical Studies in Industrial Relations, Labour History Review, and Labour History: a Journal of Labour and Social History
This collection includes content from the three LUP journals on Labour History:
Historical Studies in Industrial Relations was established in 1996 by the Centre for Industrial Relations, Keele University, to provide an outlet for, and to stimulate an interest in, historical work in the field of industrial relations and the history of industrial relations thought.
The journal's content broadly covers the employment relationship and economic, social and political factors surrounding it – such as labour markets, union and employer policies and organisation, the law, and gender and ethnicity. Articles with an explicit political dimension, particularly recognising divisions within the working class and within workers’ organisations, will be encouraged, as will historical work on labour law.
Contributions on countries other than Britain, particularly those with a comparative focus, are welcome, as is work on the nineteenth century and even earlier.
Labour History Review is published in partnership with the Society for the Study of Labour History, alongside the book series Studies in Labour History, edited by Dr Alan Campbell. Since 1960 the journal has explored the working lives and politics of 'ordinary' people and has played a key role in redefining social and political history.
The journal's emphasis is on British labour history, though comparative and international studies are not neglected. The editors welcome contributions which dig deeper within the traditional subject matter of labour history, but they are also keen to expand the parameters of the subject and the range of approaches taken to it. They are particularly interested in articles which engage with issues of gender and ethnicity or race, as well as class.
Labour History: a Journal of Labour and Social History is published on behalf of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History.
The journal, 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, examining issues such as labour politics, trade unions, management labour practices, co-operatives, gender and ethnicity. 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.
As well as scholarly articles, Labour History also publishes essays, reviews, and memoirs that reflect the involvement of labour historians in the making of history.
