ABOUT LEFT HISTORY
Established in 1993, Left History is a refereed bi-annual scholarly journal run out of York University. With an editorial board of prominent left historians, Left History features articles from a variety of theoretical approaches by both established and new scholars. Print issues of Left History regularly include feminist, marxist, and postmodernist deliberations on topics such as race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, culture, the state, labour, the environment, theory, and method. Our online edition carries additional material including photography, interviews, fiction, film reviews, and personal narratives.

Left History is indexed in America History and Life, Historical Abstracts, Sociological Abstracts, and the Alternative Press Index. Full text editions of the journal are also available online thanks to the York University Library’s Open Journal Systems project.

Peer Review Process

Left History has a rigorous peer review process. On receipt by the journal, each article is appraised by the Editor-in-Chief and co-editors for its relationship to the theme of the journal, as well as its academic rigour. Left History requires that articles be on subject matter related to the study of the Left and that it be original research that fits the standards of academic conduct. While the journal publishes primarily historical work, it also welcomes work from other disciplines such as Sociology, English, Critical Disabilities, and Migration Studies, fields that are in conversation with the historical discipline. Once the suitability of an article is determined by the journal’s editors it must pass through a minimum of two peer reviewers. The editorial team seeks reviewers for their expertise in the article’s time period and subject matter.

 

Publication Frequency
