ToC: Labour History: A Journal of Labour and Social History

Table of contents, Volume 119 (2020), Issue 1

The latest issue of Labour History: A Journal of Labour and Social History is now available online.

This month’s issue is an occupational health and safety scholarship special. Exploring the history of workplace safety and the “new” safety issues that often have strong historical antecedents.
Publication of the issue coincides with the 50th anniversary of a disaster on the site of the construction of Melbourne’s West Gate Bridge on 15 October 1970, in which a span of the bridge collapsed and 35 men perished, with devastating and long-term effects on their families. Accordingly, its prominence in Australia’s labour history is acknowledged in this issue and a photograph of the event is featured on the front cover.
