History Workshop Journal

a radical socialist and feminist journal and collective founded in the early 1970s. It has been especially associated with ‘new ways’ of doing and presenting historical research, e.g. ‘history from below ’ (an emphasis on social history and the history of everyday life and ordinary people, including ORAL HISTORY), an emphasis on interdisciplinarity, and on writing in ways accessible to a wide readership.

For instance, we learn that two of the founding members of the labour-friendly History Workshop Journal, Sally Alexander and Anna Davin, altered the journal's direction by insisting that its commitment to publishing "history from below" must include studies that explicitly illustrated "the sexual division of labour and class struggle." "The social relationships between men and women," they held, "form the substance of feminist history, and will enrich socialist history." (Joan Allen and Malcolm Chase in Allen et al., 69) (27) These writers, we must recall, rejected approaches that pitted class against gender, realizing that the two categories were complementary.
Radical America ceased publishing in the 1990s (Radical History Review continues, though, like Social History, it has published very few articles on labour or working-class history over the past five years), and the History Workshop Journal, which printed many left-leaning labour historians throughout the 1970s and 80s, no longer calls itself either a socialist or feminist journal.
