Student history publication wins national ‘Best E-Journal’ award

January 4, 2012


 

Voces Novae, Chapman University’s online history journal, has won the prestigious 2011 Nash History Journal Prize for Best E-Journal from Phi Alpha Theta, the National History Honors Society.

This is the second time that the student-edited Voces Novae has won this national award. The winning issues contained edited versions of a massive oral history project undertaken by Alpha Mu Gamma, Chapman’s PAT chapter, to document the university’s rise to prominence over the past 20 years. The students interviewed key administrators, professors, and alumni. Posted above is a video about its making.

After a bit of technical training from Pam Ezell and Dan Noah of Panther Productions and Jana Remy, associate director of instructional technology, the students made the project their own, says professor Lee Estes, Ph.D., faculty advisor to the journal.

“The students still did most of the work themselves and the result is a tribute to their extraordinary efforts. They stepped up to the plate from the beginning and persevered until this large project was put to bed,” Dr. Estes said.

The award-winning issue may be viewed online. To access the oral history videos scroll down to the interactive timeline on the journal’s home page.
