Labor: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas
Labor: Studies in Working-Class History of the Americas.
As a site for both historical research and commentary, Labor hopes to provide a scaffolding for understanding the roots of our current dilemmas. Although the tradition from which the journal derives its energy has focused primarily on social movements and institutions based on industrial labor, Labor intends to give equal attention to other labor systems and social contexts (agricultural work, slavery, unpaid and domestic labor, informal sector, the professions, etc.). Its focus will begin on the U.S. experience but will also extend to developments across the “American” hemisphere and to other transnational comparisons that shed light on the American experience.
