The Atlas: UBC Undergraduate Journal of World History

The Atlas is a student-run publication at the University of British Columbia, active since 2004. We strive to produce a yearly journal that showcases the highest quality of historically-relevant work by undergraduate students. We are directly supported by the Department of History, the History Students Association, and the Arts Undergraduate Society.

Our journal undergoes a peer and faculty-review process. Submissions are accepted in the fall/winter and publication occurs in the spring. If you are a UBC student interested in becoming involved with The Atlas, email our Editors-in-Chief at
