About Madison Historical Review


You are in the main content


The MADISON HISTORICAL REVIEW is a peer-reviewed journal based out

of the History Department at James Madison University, created and edited by

graduate students. It is an annual, online, scholarly publication providing peer

input from both faculty and graduate students on graduate scholarship. The

editorial board is dedicated to establishing a forum for all graduate students

studying in the fields of American, European, Public, and World history, so that

they may present their ideas and arguments, as well as receive criticism from

other members of the field.

The 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 to contribute overall

to the historian’s development.
