Work in a Globalizing World: Gender, Mobility, Markets
The journal’s aim is to discuss their relationship and to identify differences as well as interconnections between the two disciplines, with a focus on areas where they can complement each other with respect to specific research problems. InterDisciplines addresses historians and sociologists first and foremost but also aims at a wider audience of interested scholars and students who are committed to interdisciplinary debate and exchange. InterDisciplines is interested in case studies that employ methods from the social sciences to answer questions of continuity, dynamics and change and combine theoretical discussion with empirical analysis. The journal also welcomes programmatic texts on basic questions of the interdisciplinary cooperation between history and sociology. InterDisciplines invites suggestions for themed issues that cover a relevant topic and invites scholars to act as guest editors. InterDisciplines is an e-journal and provides open access. Its articles are published in English. This provides its authors with a wide, international readership and makes the journal an ideal forum for up-to-date discussions.
