The Rhodes Historical Review is published annually by the Rhodes chapter of Phi Alpha Theta history honor society. The student-edited journal accepts essays from across the college that investigate historical subjects and themes from various periods and geographic regions.

Last year’s issue placed third in the Gerald D. Nash History Undergraduate Print Journal competition, organized by the national Phi Alpha Theta organization. Winners are announced in the fall.

This year’s Rhodes Historical Review —Volume 26—is edited by seniors Lindie Harper and Gwen Williams, under the guidance of Dr. Sarah Ifft Decker, assistant professor of history. It features essays authored by Esmé Benjamin ’24, Sam Frank ’24, Callie Hollis ’25, and Camille Carleton ’26.
Some of the authors will present their work as part of the annual Rhodes Symposium on April 26,  11 a.m. -12 p.m. in Buckman 200, with the Rhodes Historical Review launch party immediately following.
