doc martens boots SU releases its 1st academic journal on Civil War
“I don’t feel like the Valley has received the attention that other parts of the war has received,” Noyalas said. “The Valley was such an important place during the war.”
The inaugural journal was recently released by Shenandoah University’s McCormick Civil War Institute (CWI) and is SU’s first ever peer reviewed academic journal.
Noyalas is the director of the CWI and serves as the editor of the journal. Beth Guiliano, a retired English professor, is the copy editor. The 114 page book, which Noyalas hopes will be an annual publication, consists of essays, letters, book reviews and more from professional historians and is intended for everyone from established professionals to undergraduates.
All content for the journal must be approved by a board of 14 historians, including Allen Guelzo,
of Gettysburg College, who is a three time winner of the prestigious Lincoln Prize; Brian Matthew Jordan, of Sam Houston State University, a 2016 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in history; and Kenneth Noe, of Auburn University.
“I think it’s a pretty big step for the institution and a pretty big step for the university,” Noyalas said.
When Noyalas was brainstorming about the journal, he thought,
“What can I really do that is new and different and raises the profile of the Civil War in the Valley?”
For this reason, the journal examines the Civil War era and aspects of social, military and political history, and memory such as how the perception of the war changed over time in the Shenandoah Valley. It also shines a light on “neglected” topics, such as the experiences of slaves in the region, the operations of the Freedmen’s Bureau and significant, but often overlooked, figures such as Col. Joseph Thoburn or John Mead Gould.
