Graduate History Review

The Graduate History Review was previously published as Preteritus: A Graduate History Journal (2009-2010).

The Graduate History Review is a peer-reviewed, open-access scholarly journal that features articles from emerging scholars working in all fields of historical scholarship. It is published by history graduate students at the University of Victoria.

The bulk of each issue of The Graduate History Review will feature full-length articles based on original historical research. Each issue will also include shorter “Research Notes,” which are designed to offer students a forum to present works-in-progress, reflective essays, or “think pieces.” For both the articles and the research notes, readers will be encouraged to comment and provide feedback through this website. Occasionally, issues will have a thematic focus, in which case a call for submissions will be made accordingly.

Wordnik

When you see words like pruinose, puerility, gnosis, and cloud architect floating down a computer screen what’s going on?  You are on the Wordnik website, and you are taking in a bit of a free-form display of thousands of different words. When visitors click on a word, they are taken to its definition. The definitions here are taken from a variety of sources, including historic dictionaries and the like. On the right-hand side of the page, visitors will see examples of the word used in context from quotes taken from newspapers, books, and scientific journals. The capacities of the Wordnik website are quite impressive, as visitors can comment on each word, “love” a word, create lists, and share words with friends. For fun, visitors can also click on the “Random Word” link for, well, a random word.
