Whilst the quality and quantity of postgraduate online publication has increased considerably over the last few years, high-quality undergraduate journals are still few and far between. The history department believes that it is in students' best interests to make their mark now with a brand new undergraduate online journal.
Sitting within the infrastructure of the University’s official web-pages, the journal will act as a showcase for the excellent work that our history undergraduates produce. Its online profile will benefit from the high search-engine hit-rates that official Sussex pages achieve. For contributors, online publication will serve as a durable example of their skills & activities that will remain accessible to anyone (academia and beyond) for as long as the journal is run.
The journal will publish essay/articles between 1,500 and 3,500 words in length. If you would like to submit your work or have any questions, please contact Alice and Patrick on firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Editors
I am currently in my third year of study working towards a BA in History. My primary area of historical interest lies in the examination of the effect that economic trends had on social phenomena- specifically those phenomena that fed into the creation of identity and self in the post-war period for example economics and gender. This year I am specialising in the history of women during the 20th century, focusing in particular on the experience of British women from the 1950s onwards.
I am a final year history undergraduate and I focus on political theory. In terms of my dissertation, my research is looking at the German sociologist Georg Simmel, and the ways in which his theory of sociation is a true reflection of the individual in modern society.
