At the heart of the Social History Society’s efforts to promote the latest research and insights in social and cultural history are our two publication series.

New Directions in Social and Cultural History

New Directions in Social and Cultural History is the Social History Society’s new book series, in collaboration with Bloomsbury, to be launched in spring 2018 with an edited volume of the same name.

The series editors welcome expressions of interest from historians with ideas for either a monograph or an edited volume that would present not only new research but suggest new directions for our social and cultural understanding of the past, with no limits on chronological or geographical focus.

Cultural & Social History

Cultural & Social History: The Journal of the Social History Society seeks to make connections across the broad territory of cultural and social history and across chronological and geographical boundaries.

It also aims to make links across the neighbouring sub-disciplines of history (economic, social, cultural and political) and between history and closely related disciplines which concern themselves with the history of culture (primarily literature, history of art, anthropology, cultural/media studies) and between history and the social sciences.

It is a forum for methodological debate of broad relevance to historians of any field in which the future directions of the discipline can be discussed and, it is hoped, initiated.
