Here’s an announcment by the editors of the journal The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs:

The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs joins the University of Chicago Press journals program:

The editors of The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs: An Interdisciplinary Journal (SHAD) are pleased to announce that the journal has joined the publishing program of The University of Chicago Press. Building on 30 years of publication, we will release our first issue with the Press in 2019. The journal will be available both in print and online. For further information, please see:
The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs is dedicated to publishing high-quality original research, reflection essays, and reviews in the field of alcohol and drug history, broadly construed. Multidisciplinary and supported by top scholars in the field, SHAD is the only English-language academic journal devoted to this diverse topic.
The journal appears twice annually as an official publication of the Alcohol and Drugs History Society, which promotes scholarship on the history of alcohol and drug use, abuse, production, trade, and regulation across time and space. Scholars publishing with SHAD are invited to be featured on the Points blog (, an online space for exchanging new ideas, insights, and speculations about our interdisciplinary and rapidly evolving field.
SHAD editors Nancy Campbell, David Herzberg, and Lucas Richert are absolutely thrilled with the journal’s new home, which will give its excellent scholarship the visibility and intellectual connections merited at a time of heightened and well-justified interest in the many worlds of drugs and alcohol. We are also delighted with our new cover design, featuring paintings by Jenny Kemp.
The Social History of Alcohol and Drugs will be represented at upcoming conferences, including those of the American Association for the History of Medicine, the American Historical Association, the American Sociological Association, and the History of Science Society, among others.
