Recent epistemological challenges have shaken the core assumptions of many historians. Culture is now seen as intrinsic to social practice, and therefore at the heart of society itself. Cultural and Social History, the official peer reviewed journal of the Social History Society (SHS), aims to address disciplinary shifts, and create a dialogue between social and cultural historians. The journal emphasizes the ways the social and culture are mutually constitutive and that study of one enables a deeper understanding of the other. The and in our title is important: all submissions to the journal should aim to contribute to the understanding of both cultural and social history.
