Fernwood Publishing

On behalf of Stephanie Ross and Larry Savage (CAWLS):


We have recently become the new co-editors of Fernwood’s Labour in Canada Series. Many of you will be familiar with the series, which currently features four titles that you can find here: https://fernwoodpublishing.ca/books/filter?parent:series_books=699   

We are writing to the Work and Labour Studies community to invite people with ideas for new books to contact us about the possibility of publishing in the series.

The mandate of the Labour in Canada series is to provide accessible and timely snapshots of contemporary trends in work, labour markets, and the labour movement. Titles in the series help readers understand the interconnections between work, economics, and politics across the country and around the globe. They are also resources for students, activists and researchers seeking accessible analyses of how globalization and neoliberalism have affected working people, unions, and social movements.

Up until now, the series has been made up of edited collections, but we are also open to publishing single- or multiple-authored manuscripts. In either case, Labour in Canada manuscripts should not exceed 80,000 words.
