  • Mission Statement

    The Grinnell Historical Review was established to provide a platform for historical discussions and debates and for historical research from a variety of perspectives. The GHR seeks to actively support students interested in historical study by offering a unique opportunity for undergraduates at Grinnell and beyond to showcase their scholarly works and experience the publishing process. All of us at the Grinnell Historical Review hope our journal will be a useful resource for those currently studying history as well as those exploring their interests or discovering historical scholarship for the first time.
