Call for Submissions

The Review welcomes all essays, term papers, and thesis chapters for consideration for publication. The Review prefers, but isn't limited to, original research and work that relies heavily on the use of primary source material. Papers need not have been written for a history course, they just need to address a topic of historical interest. There are no minimum or maximum lengths for papers. Submissions can be sent to the Editorial Board at any time for consideration. Please be sure to include any footnotes, endnotes, and/or bibliography. We look forward to reading your work!
