The Madison Historical Review is pleased to announce that it is now accepting article submissions for publication for the Spring 2016 issue. The MHR is a peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to highlighting work from graduate students in the fields of American, Public, and World History. The deadline for submissions is January 1, 2016. Articles may be submitted by all MA students and first and second year PhD students enrolled in historically centered programs such as, but not limited to, history, art history, historical archaeology, and public history.

Submissions are encouraged from all students who meet the eligibility requirements, especially those from students in MA programs seeking an early publishing opportunity. Specifically, the MHR is looking for articles based on original research, historiographies, book reviews, exhibit reviews and website reviews.

The purpose of the MHR is to offer graduate students an introductory experience in the peer-review process of history publishing. By encouraging students to submit their work for critical review with a cooperative spirit committed to elevating the quality of student research, the MHR seeks to benefit graduate students actively pursuing a career in and out of academia. This year we are offering a monetary award and recognition in the journal for the best article submitted in any field.  For further details visit our website at:
