Ibid. Student Journal
Welcome to the current volume of Ibid.: A Student History Journal, published by the Eta Nu Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society at TWU. Celebrating fourteen years of publishing the best in graduate and undergraduate scholarship, Ibid.’s current volume continues the journal’s strong tradition of faculty and student collaboration.
In 2020 the national office of Phi Alpha Theta awarded this journal a prestigious Gerald Nash Journal Prize for the seventh consecutive year. This national award recognized TWU students for their superlative efforts in creating a professional journal. In 2019, the national office of Phi Alpha Theta named the Eta Nu Chapter a “Best Chapter” for the seventh year in a row.
Thanks to a generous private endowment, Ibid. was able to award two prizes for the “Best Papers” appearing in this volume. Named after TWU Professor Emeritus Valentine J. Belfiglio, these prizes, awarded to Paola Alonso and Caitlin Turbeville, reward excellent scholarship and writing.
In addition to featuring our Belfiglio Prize winners’ essays, this year’s volume includes featured forum departments examining the use of Oral History, European History, and The Continued Relevance of the Past. Celebrating more than a decade of publishing the best in student research and writing, the editors of Ibid.: A Student History Journal proudly invite you to enjoy our 14th volume.
