Thematic Issue: Labor History of Computing
IEEE Annals of the History of Computing//
IEEE Annals of the History of Computing invites article manuscript
submissions for a thematic/special issue on the history of labor and
computing. Manuscripts that connect to the broader literature on labor
history are particularly encouraged. Submissions can address labor
issues, practices, or structures within a wide range of settings
including computer, software, networking, or semiconductor/components
companies throughout the world; user organizations (corporations,
government, universities, hospitals, etc.); peer production projects
(open source); trade organizations; professional associations; etc.
Possible themes and approaches include, but are not limited to, the
history of work practices, work culture, shop floor dynamics, labor
organization, legislation/lobbying, professionalization, automation and
labor displacement, offshoring, gender/race/ethnicity and IT work,
safety and risk in the workplace, etc.
The deadline for submission to this thematic issue is January 15, 2010.
Manuscripts will go through IEEE Annals of the History of Computing’s
standard peer review process. If there are more accepted manuscripts
than slots for the issue, editors will decide which articles to include
based on quality, coverage, and synergies between manuscripts. If there
are accepted manuscripts not included in the issue, they will be added
to the general publication queue and published in a later issue of IEEE
Annals of the History of Computing.
All articles must be between 5,000 and 8,000 words, including
citations/endnotes. To submit your manuscript go to
Select “Write for Us” tab at the top and follow instructions (including
selecting the Labor History thematic/special issue).
If you have any questions or would like feedback on ideas/manuscripts
prior to submission, please contact IEEE Annals of the History of
Computing Editor in Chief Jeffrey Yost (yostx003 at umn.edu
