Klicktipp: Journal of Social History and the History of Social Movements – online (Portal)

Journal of Social History and the History of Social Movements (Web);  Institut für Soziale Bewegungen, Ruhr-Universität Bochum

Moving the Social is an international and peer-reviewed journal rooted in the discipline of history but with an explicit interest in work produced on social affairs and social movements by other disciplines, in particular the social sciences, geography, anthropology and ethnology. It is particularly keen to promote transnational and comparative perspectives on the history of social movements set in a wider context of social history. It appears twice yearly, with one issue on a particular theme and one thematically mixed issue. Each issue includes a comprehensive review article, one of which each year is on recent publications in social movement studies.

All issues from 1977 have recently been digitised and can be found online, with the latest issues being only available to subscribers.

Latest issues (for subscribers):

  • Vol 60 (2018): Social Movements, Protest, and Academic Knowledge Formation. Interactions since the 1960s
  • Vol 59 (2018): Sex Workers‘ Fights — Prostitutes‘ Rights Movements in European and American Countries

The Cfp for the next thematically mixed issue is available online (Link).
