Subject: Tufts Historical Review
Description:The Tufts Historical Review (THR) is one of the leading principally-undergraduate academic journals of history in the United States. At the beginning of each school year, THR decides on a theme for the journal and then sends out a call for submissions to hundreds of colleges and universities around the world. During the second semester, essays are received, read, and voted on, until between five and eight finalists are selected. Editors then work with the authors over the first two weeks of summer vacation to implement necessary changes and copy edit the work. At the end of the summer, the printed journal is distributed to a number of leading research institutions, including Harvard University, the University of Oxford, the Library of Congress.
In addition to producing a top-quality journal, THR is also committed to fostering a community of students interested in history. To this end, THR hosts a number of events throughout the school year, including a mini lecture series, trips to the Freedom Trail, and an editors debate. Each year, THR also has the unique privilege of working with President Monaco’s office to organize a Presidential Lecture relating to the journal’s theme.
