Left History is an open access peer reviewed journal published bi-annually out of York University, with an editorial board of prominent left historians. We feature articles, review essays, and book reviews from all ranges of scholars, including graduate students, early-career scholars, and well-established scholars.

Left History invites original and unpublished submissions on a wide range of topics. Left History regularly includes articles from a spectrum of academic disciplines, political perspectives, and theoretical approaches, on topics including race, politics, social movements, human rights, gender/sexuality, culture,  labour, the environment, theory, and methodology.

Article length should range between 6,000—10,000 words, or around 20—35 double-spaced pages. We also accept book reviews of recent publications (within the last two years). Please contact the editors if you would like to submit a longer piece or want to discuss any special circumstances. Please submit an electronic version of your manuscript as a Word.docx file, and include a brief abstract, not exceeding 250 words.
