Ibid. Student Journal

Cover of TWU's History & Political Science Ibid. A Student History Journal, Volume 12, Spring 2019.

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 twelve 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 2018, the national office of Phi Alpha Theta awarded this journal the prestigious Gerald Nash Journal Prize for the fifth consecutive year. This national award recognized TWU students for their superlative efforts in creating a professional journal. At the same time, 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 three prizes for the “Best Papers” appearing in this volume. Named after long-time TWU professor Valentine J. Belfiglio, these prizes, awarded to Cynthia Lewis, Hunter Vermeer, and Kasie Moffett reward excellent scholarship and writing.

In addition to featuring our Belfiglio Prize winners’ essays, this year’s volume includes featured forum departments examining women’s history, recent historiography, and first-year scholarship. 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 12th volume.
