History publishes 15th edition of Ibid.
July 1, 2022 – DENTON - The Texas Woman's University History Program on Friday published the 15th edition of Ibid., A Student History Journal.
Ibid. is written and produced by the members of the TWU Eta Nu Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society.
"For fifteen years, Ibid. has shaped the development of historical scholars through collaborative relationships between students and faculty," said history lecturer Aubri E. Thurmond, who is the Ibid faculty advisor. "The outstanding essays in our current volume demonstrate the strength of that tradition."
This year's edition consists of eight essays covering topic areas of Southern history, in times of war, the 18th Century, and the American West.
"The student papers featured in our 15th volume ask important questions about race relations in the American South and West, as well as examine historical interpretations of various global conflicts," Thurmond said. "For that reason, I believe readers will find them relevant for our present moment."
Two essays earned the 2022 Valentine Belfiglio Prize: "Loving v. Virginia and its Local Impacts in Texas" by Stefanie Hustoft and "Historiography of Women in the Mexican Revolution" by Paola Alonso.
