The editors of Saothar, the journal of the Irish Labour History Society, have issued a call for papers. For Saothar 47, to be published in 2022, the editors are actively seeking articles which deal with class, labour, and/or gender history especially relating to Ireland. They would be interested in contributions which set the Irish experience of 1919 to 1923 in a comparative perspective. They are also interested in class, labour, gender, and/or memory reflections of the ongoing Decade of Centenaries.
Contributions are particularly welcome from early career scholars.
First published in 1975 Saothar is a refereed journal, dedicated to the study of Irish working-class history in its broadest sense, including Irish workers abroad and comparative history. It contains articles, essays, essays in review, reviews, notices, reports, source studies, thesis abstracts, bibliographies, document studies, reminiscences, correspondence and an annual overview of ILHS activities. It welcomes articles; essays; document, film and visual art studies; oral histories; archival and conference reports.
Articles should normally be in the range of 7,000–8,000 words, including footnotes. Longer submissions are welcome, but authors are advised to consult the editors in advance. Review articles and reviews should adhere to the word limit set by or agreed with the editors. Articles can be submitted to the editors, Dr Mary McAuliffe or Dr Peter Rigney.
Articles submitted to Saothar are subject to the standard blind reviewing policy. All articles should be submitted by Friday, January 14, 2022.
