  • Description

    The official journal for the Labor and Working-Class History Association (LAWCHA). A subscription to Labor is available through membership in LAWCHA.

    The labor question—who will do the work and under what economic and political terms?—beckons today with renewed global urgency.

    As a site for both historical research and commentary, Labor hopes to provide a scaffolding for understanding the roots of our current dilemmas. While still engaging social movements and institutions based on industrial work, Labor gives equal attention to other critical labor systems and social contexts, including agricultural work, slavery, unpaid and domestic labor, the informal sector, and the professions. We look not only to academic historians but also to other scholars, journalists, labor educators, poets, and writer-activists for submissions.

    The journal is endorsed by SPARC (the Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition), an initiative of the Association of Research Libraries.

    Abstractors and Indexers:

    Indexed/abstracted in the following: Alternative Press Index, America: History and Life, Historical Abstracts, Emerging Sources Citation Index, SocINDEX, Sociological Abstracts, Worldwide Political Science Abstracts.
