Welcome to the first ever issue of the Journal of Early Career Research in Humanities and Social Sciences (JECRHSS). This issue focuses on the theme of ‘Justice and Equality’- something that we felt was open to interpretation to a range of academic areas.
We have had the pleasure to watch this journal grow from an idea in a funding pitch, to a fully fledged website with incredible contributions. We would like to thank all of those who have been involved in creating this first issue, including our steering committee, our peer reviewers, our contributors and our guest editor: Dr Sally Hancock.
It has been a journey since getting funding in January 2019, a huge thank you to ReCSS for providing us with the means to start, what we hope, will be something very special.
We have also decided to dedicate a special aspect of this issue to Ben Clark, a huge loss to the postgraduate community at the University of York. You will find a paper by him, as well as a special selection of other articles from his peers in the 'Ben Clark' tab on this website.
Please enjoy all the contributions and share widely! We'll have another issue on the way before you know it.
