The Global Sixties: An Interdisciplinary Journal is the only academic, peer-reviewed journal to focus solely on this transformative impact and legacies of this decade in our history.

Originally launched in 2008 as The Sixties: A Journal of History, Politics, and Culture, it was renamed in 2022 to account for the broader and more globally inclusive trajectory of scholarship in this area. 

Generally focusing on the concept of “the long Sixties” and welcoming approaches from all disciplines, the journal addresses how this period continues to be examined and redefined across the world, encouraging global, regional, and local perspectives, as well as transnational and comparative analyses.
