Southeastern Review of Journalism History

The Southeastern Review of Journalism History is a peer-reviewed research journal devoted to the study of U.S. and international mass communication history. It is housed in the Department of Communication at Augusta University in Augusta, Ga., and is the official publication of the Southeastern Colloquium of the American Journalism Historians Association.

The review sees journalism history broadly and will consider all forms of mass communication that have had an impact on any area of print culture or journalism's past. Topics in previous editions have included column writing; coverage of major topics and events in national and international history (such as civil war, economic policy, frontier society, immigration, national liberation, racism, and slavery); muckraking, reporting arts, leisure, and sports; sensationalism; and travel writing, among other topics.

The Review accepts submissions from undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty. The journal publishes four articles per edition, three of which are anticipated to be student work presented at communication-related conferences.

The editor-in-chief is Dr. Debra Reddin van Tuyll, professor of communication at Augusta University. The managing editor and book review page editor is Dr. David W. Bulla, interim department chair and associate professor of communication.
