Visit https://gorffennolswan.wordpress.com to read more about this research journal being produced by students in the Department of History – an impressive achievement and a showcase for their employability skills!
The journal is being cordinated by Dr Charlie Rozier, a Lecturer in Medieval History and employability coordinator in the History Department. He will be helping to organise the journal this year, overseeing the project and helping the team if they experience any problems in the process. You can find out more about Charlie’s research and teaching interests at http://www.swansea.ac.uk/staff/academic/artshumanities/hc/c.c.rozier/.
Here’s an extract from the introduction to Issue 5 by the Chief Editor, Stephanie Brown:
The journal began life in 2015 publishing undergraduate essays from the Department of History and Classics. This edition marks a new era, following the reorganisation of History and Classics as two separate departments. This year Gorffennol has been reimagined in an effort to provide a more professional publication, which more accurately prepares the student authors and editors for the world of work and the field of creative writing. New for this year are the inclusion of original postgraduate research articles, department news and events, and even an interview with an author of historical fiction, James Aitcheson. Nevertheless, the journal continues the original commitment to celebrate first-class undergraduate work.
