Michigan Journal of History

Founded in 2001, the Journal focuses on publishing thought provoking new pieces that focus on both original research as well as challenges to previous works. The Michigan Journal of History (MJH) is comprised of undergraduate editors at the University of Michigan whose passion for History has drawn them to this biannual publication. MJH does not focus on one particular type of historical submission. Students with focus areas in all types of History are encouraged to submit; we also encourage students from other disciplines including, but not limited to, history, anthropology, political science, law, international studies, area studies, ethnic studies, and gender and sexuality studies to send in their papers, granted they demonstrate a historical theme. If you are either a current undergraduate or you have graduated within the past semester, MJH encourages you to submit your work for publication consideration. Great Debates. Essays in History.

That this state-room had been specially engaged for "Charles Dickens, Esquire, and Lady, "was rendered sufficiently clear even to my scared intellect by a very small manuscript, announcing the fact, which was pinned on a very flat quilt, covering a very thin mattress, spread like a surgical plaster on a most inaccessible shelf. We had experienced a pretty smart shock before coming below, which, but that we were the most sanguine people living, might have prepared us for the worst. And there she is! What have we here? To and fro, to and fro, to and fro again a hundred times! Return to table of contents. Where the West Begins. World History. Cultural Studies Central. 3 Months Among the Reconstructionists.
