The article presents a new moment of Labor History, characterized by the attempt of overcoming the methodological nationalism and the Eurocentrism. This field has a great potential to establish a global perspective of knowledge of the working class and its history. A new Global Labor History is been constructed as a "area of concern", characterized by a certain theoretical pluralism and by the transnational and even transcontinental approach to labor relations and workers' social movements in the broadest sense of the word. Free and unfree labor, paid and unpaid, formal or informal organizations and movements, in a large temporal perspective constitutes the subjects of these new studies. Finally the article puts some examples of recent researches that walks in the direction of a Global Labor History.
