Established in 1993, Left History is a peer-reviewed bi-annual scholarly journal run out of York University, with an editorial board of prominent left historians. Left History features articles by both established and new scholars from a variety of academic disciplines, on topics including race, politics, gender, sexuality, culture, the state, labour, the environment, human rights, theory, and method. Left History also includes review essays and individual book reviews.

The editors are pleased to announce that as of February 2019, all content will be published online and open-access. This shift will help us to cut down on paper use, and will also make our contributors' articles and reviews immediately available to the scholarly community upon publication. Our updated website can be reached at https://lh.journals.yorku.ca/. Users simply need to register with a username and password to be able to view open-access content, including our most recently published edition. The website also contains calls for papers, including the announcement of our upcoming special edition, which asks the question "what is left history?" https://lh.journals.yorku.ca/index.php/lh/announcement/view/9

We thank our former subscribers for their years of support, and we look forward to continuing to serve our readers and contributors in this new digital chapter of the journal's life.
