Labour History

Labour History is the journal of the Australian Society for the Study of Labour History (ASSLH).

The interdisciplinary nature of labour history, and its acceptance of less traditional sources, including folklore and oral testimony, makes it a fascinating field, alive to past and present social justice issues.

The journal, which has been appearing twice yearly since 1962, is the premier outlet for refereed, scholarly articles in its field in Australasia.

Because the ASSLH aims to raise historical awareness in the community, Labour History also publishes essays, reviews, and memoirs that reflect the involvement of labour historians in the making of history.
