The Luther Skald is published twice annually, February and October, and is intended to provide a venue for outstanding student history writing, which may serve as a model for students working on history essays during their undergraduate careers. Although Luther’s History faculty recommend student work for publication, The Luther Skald accepts submissions, in the form of book reviews and essays, from Luther alumni and current students. Manuscript submissions should follow the style guidelines established in the American Historical Review and should be sent to the editor. Manuscripts received by January 1 will be considered for the February issue, and those received by August 1 will be considered for the October issue. The Luther Skald will also print, from time to time, news of the honors and achievements of History students, faculty, and alumni.
