Submissions are now being accepted for VOLUME 18 of ARCHIVE! The Undergraduate Journal of History

Submissions are now being accepted for VOLUME 18 of ARCHIVE!

ARCHIVE(https://uwarchive.wordpress.com/) is the undergraduate journal of history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and we take pride in being student-organized and edited. Each year we look to publish a selection of outstanding historical scholarship writing by our fellow undergraduates. ARCHIVE accepts submissions from any current UW undergraduate students as well as any alumni within one year of graduation. Publication is not exclusive to history majors and interdisciplinary work utilizing historical content, as well as more traditional historical works, will be considered. Accepted submissions will be engaging, scholarly, and go beyond the existing literature. We accept submissions of all length.

Submissions are being accepted electronically only. Please submit in .doc or PDF formats. All submissions must use Chicago style citations and include a bibliography. Images may be included.

Please submit your contact information in a separate cover sheet, and remove any references to you, the course or the professor from the submission itself.

Submissions are due February 23, 2015. Please email submissions or any questions you may have to uwarchive@gmail.com.

2015 UW-Madison Undergraduate Symposium

The Annual Undergraduate Symposium is a forum designed to showcase undergraduate students' creativity, achievement and talent across all disciplines through oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibitions, film shorts (new this year), and performances. The Undergraduate Symposium is open to all University of Wisconsin – Madison students enrolled during the 2014-2015 academic year, including those who graduated in December.

Please encourage your undergraduate students--who are engaged in research, service learning, fine art and performance--to take advantage of this opportunity to present their work to the campus community and public-at-large. I hope you will also consider encouraging students in your classes to attend the Symposium even if they are not presenting.

This year’s Undergraduate Symposium will be held Thursday, April 16, 2015, in Union South. The schedule includes a film shorts session, a performance workshop where students can perform and discuss their creative process, and a reception at 5:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The Undergraduate Symposium Web site is located at: http://www.learning.wisc.edu/ugsymposium/. For more information, please contact Laurie Mayberry, Assistant Vice Provost, at 262-5246 or laurie.mayberry@wisc.edu.
