Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History

http://digitalcommons.calpoly.edu/forum/

The Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History is a historical journal
published at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo by students associated with the
Cal Poly History

Department and the university’s chapter of Phi Alpha Theta. Through
publication of The Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History, the members
of the Alpha-

Nu-Gamma chapter of Phi Alpha Theta hope to highlight the contribution
of Cal Poly’s history department to the university environment and
showcase the

significance and diversity of the field of history.

Founded in 2008, The Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History prides
itself not only on being the university’s first (and only) historical
journal, but also on being

an open-submission, multi-disciplinary journal. Although The Forum:
Cal Poly's Journal of History is a journal of history, we recognize
that history is not a

discipline existing in isolation. In fact, the very name of our
journal stems from our recognition that history is a field of
continual discourse and debate that

often includes an examination of multiple disciplines. Accordingly,
The Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History welcomes submissions from
students of all

fields of study.

Furthermore, in keeping with the goals of Phi Alpha Theta to “promote
the study of history through the encouragement of research, good
teaching,

publication, and the exchange of learning and ideas,” The Forum: Cal
Poly's Journal of History welcomes submissions from students outside
of the Cal

Poly community. We firmly believe that the best means to further
knowledge and foster the diffusion of ideas is to embrace an
interuniversity approach.

Writing history extends far beyond the chronological recounting of
names and events. Rather, historical inquiry is a dynamic endeavor to
understand the

significance of events, peoples, and cultures that extends far beyond
the chronological recounting of names and events. Given the complexity
of sources

and the astounding range of topics available, such inquiry is limited
only by the imaginative capacity of individuals. Thus, we hope that
you will join us at

The Forum: Cal Poly's Journal of History in contributing to this
historical discourse by submitting your essay or book review today.
