About This Journal
The Lambda Upsilon chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at Santa Clara University annually publishes Historical Perspectives, an undergraduate research journal. Since 1991, students have submitted their best scholarship to be reviewed by the Historical Perspectives editing committee, a team of students and faculty. Historical Perspectives has been repeatedly recognized for its high quality. It was awarded First Prize in the Gerald D. Nash History Journal Award competition in 2013. The journal has also received Second Prize for its 2009, 2011, and 2015 volumes. The award is sponsored by Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honor Society, for excellence in a student-produced historical journal.
