Left History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Historical Inquiry and Debate

This useful resource is a bi-annual academic journal published out of York University in Toronto. I have been a subscriber off and on for years. Some of its articles are more interesting and relevant to me than others, certainly, but it is a reminder of the possibilities for dialogue between those of us doing history in communities and movements and those doing it in university settings. In their own words:

With an editorial board of prominent left historians, Left History features articles from a variety of theoretical approaches by both established and new scholars. Print issues of Left History regularly include feminist, marxist, and postmodernist deliberations on topics such as race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, culture, the state, labour, the environment, theory, and method. Our online edition carries additional material including photography, interviews, fiction, film reviews, and personal narratives.

Certainly the editorial board has some names I’ve read and whose work I respect — Vijay Prashad, Linda Kealey, David Roediger, Franca Iacovetta, Bryan Palmer, Craig Heron, Karen Dubinsky, and more. Check out their site here, and think about subscribing.
