Legacy, a journal of student research, has been published once a year since 2001. The journal enables students to present their research to a broader audience of historians and interested readers. All articles published in Legacy are rigorously peer-reviewed and usually revised from research papers done in SIUC history courses.

The present faculty advisor for Legacy is Dr. Holly Hurlburt, who will be happy to provide more information on how to submit work for publication in the journal. Please contact her at hurlburt@siu.edu, phone: 618/453-7867.

Current Issue: Volume 18, Issue 1 (2018)


The editorial staff would like to thank all those who supported this issue of Legacy, especially the SIU Undergradute Student Government, Phi Alpha Theta, SIU Department of History faculty and staff, our history alumni, our department chair Dr. Jonathan Wiesen, the students who submitted papers, and their faculty mentors Professors Jo Ann Argersinger, Jonathan Bean, José Najar and Joseph Sramek.
