Social History

Social History publishes articles, reviews and debates of high quality historical analysis. The editors also seek to encourage more experimental formats of presentation, which move away from the structure of the formal scholarly article. These may take the form of interventions that invoke discussion, provoke argument, enter criticism and create new space for analysis. Social History is committed to developing a broad geographical basis. Research on all parts of the world will be considered, and the editors would particularly like to encourage work on areas such as Africa, Eastern Europe and Latin America. As well as medieval, early modern and nineteenth-century history, Social History aims to extend its coverage of twentieth-century work. The journal is dedicated to providing a forum for theoretical debate and innovation on questions of social formations, genders, classes and ethnicities and is open to approaches from other fields such as sociology, social anthropology, politics, economics and demography. In this light, the editors are committed to making the journal as wide ranging as possible conceptually, certainly going beyond recent struggles associated with post-structuralism. While recognising the important contributions made in these exchanges, the editors wish to see a move away from radical divisions drawn between the social and the cultural.
