The Yale Historical Review presents:

The Yale Issue (Fall 2016)


This special issue of The Yale Historical Review showcases a series of essays focused on the history of our own beloved university.  A full seventy-five years older than the republic, Yale possesses a rich history that is intertwined with some of the most consequential events of the modern era. From Yale’s role in shaping the ad industry to its half-hearted attempt to found a school in the Abu Dhabi, this issue explores both better- and lesser-known chapters in the University’s past.





The Yale Historical Review provides undergraduates an opportunity to have their exceptional work highlighted and encourages the diffusion of original historical ideas on campus by providing a forum for outstanding undergraduate history papers covering any historical topic.
