Holistic History: Department Initiatives and Publications

Enhance your history prowess through our lecture series and journal.

The Santa Angela Review

Submit your own historical writings through ASU’s student-run online history journal, The Santa Angela Review.

The Santa Angela Review seeks to establish a community of intellectual curiosity around historical and geographical research.

The journal provides a platform for academic discussion and showcases the writings, research and various projects of students and recent graduates from Angelo State University. Articles in previous issues of the journal have discussed topics ranging from the Civil War’s Battle of Shiloh and military reconstruction in Texas to the work of Chinese revolutionary author Ding Ling, the efforts of the Adelsverein Society in Texas and the activism of Chicana feminists in the 1960s and 1970s.

The journal is overseen by a committee of faculty advisors and largely run by student editors, who assist with copy-editing, digital formatting and social media.

The History Lecture Series, supported by the Dorsey B. Hardeman Endowed Chair in History, offers three to five lectures annually covering various history-related topics.

This series brings in one scholar from outside the university each year to give a featured talk on a historical topic with Angelo State professors delivering anywhere from two to four invited lectures annually.

The lectures are free and open to the public with an eye toward student engagement. This series allows on-campus students to immerse themselves in historical topics they might not otherwise study.
