Membership of the Society

As a member (individual or organisation) you are supporting an organisation that encourages teaching and research in the field of labour history, and seeks to make history a vital part of popular consciousness. The Federal Society pursues these goals by:

  • publishing (twice a year) the journal Labour History which offers fully-refereed articles, reports, book reviews, and news of events related to labour history
  • awarding prizes for outstanding articles written in the field of labour history
  • organising regular talks and sponsoring events and supporting research
  • sponsoring a biennial national conference
  • holding Annual General Meetings and dinners
  • maintaining this website
  • providing the opportunity to make contacts with others who share your interest in labour history

Membership also gives you the right to attend, and vote at, ASSLH’s Annual General Meeting. The cost is a mere $10 for individuals or $20 for institutions. You can join on this page or by visiting our shop.
