Culture, Labor, History

The Culture, Labor, History series seeks to publish innovative work which links labor history and cultural history, focusing on the diverse lives of working class people in a variety of places and eras. Books in the series explore the ways in which working people have made sense of, explained, and altered their environments, viewing them as political actors and cultural consumers and creators. The editors encourage a range of methodologies in the study of class, including religious, political, and intellectual history, as well as a range of settings and periods, from the Atlantic World to the present.
