Historical Narratives Preliminary Meeting Today, 9:30 PM

Submitted by Sarah Dash ’14:

Historical Narratives is a peer-edited journal of history papers. Once a year, we publish a book (usually somewhere between 150 and 200 pages) of 4-6 history papers written by our peers. As editors, we solicit papers and meet a few (usually two or three) times each semester. We read through the papers we get and eventually whittle it down to a final 8-12 papers that we deliberate about in the spring semester to ultimately decide which papers we publish.

If you like history, join us! There are only 2-3 meetings each semester, you’ll get a chance to read interesting history papers and, depending on the crop we get, the opportunity to argue passionately to defend the papers you like and ultimately shape the journal.

We’ll be having a preliminary meeting at 9:30 PM TODAY in Allbritton 304. We’ll field any questions you may have and will get the ball rolling on our submission drives. Come by if you’re interested, or email one of the editors-in-chief: Sarah Dash ’14, sdash[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; Ali Ozols ’14, aozols[at]wesleyan[dot]edu; or Brendan O’Donnell ’14, bzodonnell[at]wesleyan[dot]edu.

Date: Tuesday, September 17

Historical Narratives Fall Submissions Drive Deadline

Justin Pottle ’13 writes in about The End of Historical Narratives?, which could be the name of an unreleased essay by Francis Fukuyama. I’m including the entirety of his email because it’s great:

Hey Zach!

Hope your weekend/finals are going well—I’m still kind of reeling from Its a Wonderful Life. Crazy. Its Christmastime. Everything is beautiful. Anyways, I’m writing in with a wesleying request. Can you put a post up advertising the end of Historical Narratives fall submissions? Something like this:

Historical Narratives, Wesleyan’s undergraduate journal of history, is wrapping up its fall submissions drive tomorrow, December 10, but there is still time to submit your academic work discussing or pertaining to historical subjects and analysis. We’re looking for papers between 5 and 30 pages in any subject with an emphasis on original research. If your professor liked it, we probably will too. Successful papers will go through multiple rounds of anonymous review and editing, and the best papers will make it into our sleek academic journal at the end of next semester. You can submit papers whenever, but send submissions to weshistoricalnarratives(at)gmail(dot)com by Monday night to be consider in the first round of review.

I’ve attached a picture of Abraham Lincoln riding a bear. Do with it what you will.

Deadline: Monday (tomorrow) night

Historical Narratives Editorial Meeting

Justin “Poodle” Pottle ’13 just asked me to put up a Wesleying post concerning Historical Narratives’ first editorial meeting of the year and to include a picture of “William Pinch, Napoleon, Rick Ross, whatever works for you, really.” Rick Ross works for me just fine.

Historical Narratives, Wesleyan’s undergraduate journal of history, is having its first editorial meeting of the year tonight at 9:15 p.m. in the Albritton Cafe (Room 311). We’re looking for new editors to help solicit student work during our upcoming fall submissions drive and to help anonymously review and edit submitted essays and articles, so come by and learn about what we’re up to this semester. At the end of they year, we’ll have put together a sleek academic journal of some of the finest academic work Wesleyan students have to offer. All majors welcome! Email jpottle@wes or sdash@wes if you have any questions.

Date: Tonight, October 2
Time: 9:15 pm
Place: Albritton 311
