The Madison Historical Review is designed to provide a scholarly exchange between graduate history students around the country, to encourage historical scholarship to aid in the refinement of research, analytical and writing skills, and contribute to the overall historian’s development.


Over the next few years the editorial board has committed itself to expanding the journal to advance the original vision of its founders. We seek to add book reviews, literature reviews, and interviews with prominent historians to our published content to further the professional development of all history graduate students. Our vision for the future rests on our commitment to contribute original scholarship produced by rising students in the field of history.


Since the publication of the journal’s first issue in 2003, the Review has sought to benefit the professional development of graduate students at James Madison University and other programs around the world. Each year the editorial board, made up of graduate students at JMU, receives and edits article submissions to publish on our online journal.
