By Staff Reports

(Victor Valley)– History in the Making, the Cal State San Bernardino history department’s award-winning journal that showcases the work of its students, has published its 11th volume and is now available in print and will be available online in the coming weeks.

The journal is an annual publication of the university’s Alpha Delta Nu Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society, and is sponsored by the CSUSB Department of History.

It is published at the end of the spring quarter each academic year, and has earned the reputation of being among the top journals of its kind in the nation, having been awarded five Gerald D. Nash History Journal Awards (third place in 2009 and 2013, second place in 2012 and 2015, and first place in 2014).

With students Athahn Steinback and Lark Winner serving as chief editors, the latest journal continues “that tradition of excellence by bringing readers the finest, and most thought-provoking articles produced by current undergraduate and graduate students of CSUSB, as well as those of our recent alumni,” the editors wrote in their introduction.

“This year’s journal features remarkable topical diversity, including four full-length articles, three public history papers, one in-memoriam, three travel pieces, and seven reviews or analyses, on topics ranging from film, to art, to historicity in video games,” Steinback and Winner wrote.

History faculty members Tiffany Jones, the department chair, and Jeremy Murray served as faculty advisers for the journal.

“This year’s editors and authors are a stellar representation of our campus’s excellence and intellectual ambition,” wrote Murray. “At over 300 pages, the journal is the length of a good-sized book, and its contents are engaging, timely, and rigorous.

“This edition represents the careful and professional work of the editors of the journal, and a fitting culmination of the undergraduate studies of many of our authors,” Murray continued. “The scope of the journal is rich and rewarding, with original research on topics ranging from the Turkish constitution to Indian boarding schools to neoliberal policies in Haiti to U.S. immigration, and with review and travel pieces that range from CSUSB’s own Anthropology museum to Berlin to ancient Egypt to the beaches of Thailand and more.”
