The newest issue of The Classic Journal showcases an unprecedented number of articles by our history majors. The Classic Journal is dedicated to showcasing critical writing and research composed by University of Georgia undergraduate students. Find out more at Congratulations to the authors!

Issue 11.2 Spring features the following articles by history students, and more by students from a variety of disciplines:

Jack Sodemann’s essay “The Forging of the Kurdish National Identity in Iraq from 1925-1932” explores “Kurdish resistance to the mandate government of Iraq from 1925 to Iraq’s independence from British colonial rule in 1932.” article

Sam Northenor’s essay “An Analysis of the Discrepancies within the Anglo-Iraqi War Scholastic Debate” explores “the driving forces behind the Golden Square military coup and the resulting Anglo-Iraqi War in May of 1941.” article 

Adam Miller’s essay “Masculine Women: Gender, the Soul, and Controversy in the Passion of Perpetua and Felicity” explores “the Passion of Perpetua and Felicity, a narrative which depicts the martyrdom of Vibia Perpetua and her companions in Carthage in 203 CE.” article 

Maggie Sutherland’s essay “British Air Control in Colonial Iraq” paper explores “[t]he history of colonial Iraq” and how “bringing the Middle East up to standards of the West was sufficient for justifying colonization but was inadequate in rationalizing bombardment of civilians during the interwar period.” article 

The Classic Journal is a collaborative effort by faculty and graduate teaching assistants who are affiliated with the Franklin College Writing Intensive Program. Founded in Fall 2015, the journal now accepts submissions from UGA students enrolled in writing-intensive and upper-division courses across the disciplines (i.e., WIP courses, W-suffix courses, courses with a major writing component, etc.) and publishes two–three issues per year.
