Ex Post Facto

Ex Post Facto

Ex Post Facto is an academic journal produced by students of the Department of History at San Francisco State University and by members of the Kappa Phi Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta. We publish once annually, at the end of every spring semester.

Copies of the 2016 issue of Ex Post Facto, Volume 25, are available in both the Department of History (SCI276) and The Lounge (SCI270).  Please feel free to pick up copy! We are very proud of this year's journal and the opportunity to share it with the academic community.

Each fall Ex Post Facto accepts submissions of historical essays, book reviews, and historiographies from any SF State student, and encourages undergraduate submissions. Every year the Jospeh Mullins Prize in History is awarded for both the best undergraduate and graduate student submission.

Undergraduate and graduate student editors can earn 0-3 credits per semester and learn valuable editing skills. The fall semester is primarily reading and reviewing the submissions to make your thoughtful recommendations to the managing editors as to whether or not the submission should be published. The spring semester is comprised of line editing and preparation for taking the journal to press.

Those who are interested in being managing editors for the 2017-18 Academic year should contact Dr. Eva Sheppard Wolf at shepwolf@sfsu.edu
