Journal of Social History Publishes New Issue in 50th Year
The Journal of Social History has served as one of the leading outlets for innovative historical scholarship since its inception fifty years ago. The JSH publishes articles in social and cultural history from all areas and periods, and has played a particularly important role in integrating work in Latin American, African, and Asian history with sociohistorical analysis on Europe and the United States. Published by Oxford University Press, the journal is edited at George Mason University by three professors in the Department of History and Art History. Matthew Karush is the editor in chief, Sam Lebovic is the associate editor, and Peter Stearns is the founding editor.
The JSH has just published a new issue (volume 50, issue 2, winter 2016). Available from Oxford UP, the issue contains articles on guilds in early modern Madrid, sodomitical subculture in eighteenth-century Paris, racial categories in nineteenth-century Labrador, the mentalities of properties classes on the eve of World War I, a federal psychiatric hospital for American Indians in South Dakota, on "la morocha agentina" in the early twentieth century, and Mexican American jazzmen on the West Coast.
