Left History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Historical Inquiry and Debate

Call for Submissions

As Left History approaches its twenty-fifth year of publication, we continue to invite original submissions on a wide range of topics, from both established and early-career scholars. Issues of Left History regularly feature articles from a variety of academic disciplines, political perspectives, and theoretical approaches, on topics including race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, culture, the state, labour, the environment, human rights, theory, and method.

While we continue to welcome submissions on these and other topics, Left History is also compiling articles for more thematically focused future issues. These themes are:

  • Critical and historical analysis of left- and right-wing politics in Trumpist America
  • The Left and the history of sexuality
  • New approaches to history
  • Politics and the environment

Submissions should be no more than 35 pages in length (double spaced) and should follow the guidelines set out by the Chicago Manual of Style, 16th ed. Please see our style guide for detailed specifications.

Submit your manuscript as a Word Doc through an email attachment. Please note that abstracts should not exceed 250 words.

Left History is a refereed, bi-annual scholarly journal run out of York University. We accept submissions at any time.
