Clio's Scroll

Clio’s Scroll, the Berkeley Undergraduate History Journal, is published twice yearly by students of the Department of History at the University of California, Berkeley. Founded in 1981, Clio’s Scroll has published over thirty issues. The journal aims to provide undergraduates with the opportunity to publish outstanding historical work.

Clio’s Scroll is produced with the financial support from the Townsend Center for the Humanities, the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC), and Berkeley’s Department of History. The views expressed in the articles are solely those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of the journal, the editors, the university, or the sponsors.

The journal publishes articles by undergraduates and recent graduates of any university, so long as the submissions are historical in nature. Clio’s Scroll is led by an editor-in-chief and managing editor and staffed by several associate editors. Membership in Clio’s Scroll is limited to undergraduates at the University of California, Berkeley. The journal is committed to a diverse and inclusive editorial board.

Phi Alpha Theta, Chi Chapter

Phi Alpha Theta, Chi Chapter, is an undergraduate honor society which facilitates a wide range of activities every year designed to give history students the opportunity to better get to know one another, as well as graduate students and faculty on campus. Throughout the year, the chapter sponsors events ranging from the intellectual to the purely social, including a stimulating lecture series, faculty-student dinners, and the History 101 undergraduate thesis colloquium at the end of every spring semester.

UC Berkeley's Chi Chapter belongs to the national Phi Alpha Theta History Honor Society, which aims to "promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication, and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians [and] to bring students, teachers, and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.”
