The Journal of the Oxford University History Society

The Journal of the Oxford University History Society was established by the postgraduate community at Oxford as a medium for the publication and dissemination of original and inter-disciplinary historical research. It is an on-line peer-reviewed journal run by postgraduate students under the aegis of the Oxford University History Society (OUHS). It aims to: reflect the activities and interests of OUHS; establish scholarly links in the varied community of historians at the University of Oxford; to serve as a discussion forum for the international community of undergraduates, postgraduate students and established academics.

The journal publishes on-line both graduate and undergraduate papers in the following subject areas: Archaeology, Ancient History, Medieval History, Early Modern History and Modern History, European History, History of the British Isles, World History, Approaches to History, Economic History, History of Science and History of Art. In addition, the journal welcomes contributions in the form of book reviews, interviews with historians and reports of OUHS events. We also organise seminars and other events.

The first issue of the journal was published in Michaelmas Term 2003.
