Place three paper copies of the submission in the Janus mailbox located in the Department of History, 2115 Key Hall. Please, do not include your name or personal information on the submission--this ensures anonymity and fairness. An additional page should include your contact information: name, telephone number, title of the submission, and email address. In addition, citations must be consistent with Chicago/Turabian, a shorthand for the Chicago Manual of Style and Kate Turabian, A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and Dissertations.

Essays: All essays may be a maximum of 7,500 words (approximately 30 pages), not including footnotes and bibliography. We accept historiographical essays as well as articles based on primary sources. Primary-source essays must include at least one primary source, but the use of additional ones as well as secondary sources is encouraged. In historgraphical essays, the author should analyze at least one secondary source and discuss its argumentation, methodology, and place it within the different theorical schools of historical debate. At least one additional secondary source must be included to provide a contrasting point of view.

Book and Film Reviews: All book reviews may be a maximum of 3,750 words (approximately 15 pages). Each submission should include a summary and analysis of the book or film. Reviews are not limited to history books or films; anything may be reviewed as long as it is analyzed from an historical perspective.
