Labour History Review’s scope

The journal’s emphasis is on British labour history, though comparative and international studies are not neglected. We welcome contributions that dig deeper within the traditional subject matter of labour history and are keen to expand the parameters of the subject and the range of approaches taken to it. We are particularly interested in articles that engage with issues of gender, ethnicity or race, as well as class.
