Aim & Scope:
Established in 1976, Social History publishes high quality and innovative work without restrictions of period or place. This peer reviewed journal, published quarterly, encourages research articles that take as their starting point much longer periods of time than is now the norm, and have an ambition of scale that is commonplace in historical sociology, historical geography and demography. Case studies, particularly when integrated with broader considerations, will continue to have their place in the pages of Social History.
The journal wishes to broaden its scope by publishing more material on the medieval period and the contemporary, including the present and very recent past. In so doing, Social History will explore the liminal zones that mark the points of rupture and continuity between late antiquity and the medieval, and between the present and the future.
Social History welcomes work which recognises the significance of those who are hidden, marginalised, neglected and invariably speechless. The journal also seeks to understand how power and rule is exercised and to analyse the role of intermediaries in the management and regulation of everyday life. Social History publishes articles that explain and analyse the operation of social behaviours, attitudes, roles, formations and structures, and processes of social and moral regulation.
Social History is a journal for the academic community and for all those interested in the study of social change. All research articles published in Social History have undergone peer review, involving initial editor screening and consideration by at least two anonymous referees.
