Articles in 2013
The Western Historical Quarterly
set a new journal record in 2013 with authors winning seven
national and international prizes for their published articles.
Edited and produced for the Western History Association by
USU’s Department of History since 1969, the Western
Historical Quarterly presents original articles dealing
with the North American West—expansion and colonization,
indigenous histories, regional studies (including western
Canada, northern Mexico, Alaska, and Hawai’i), and transnational,
comparative, and borderland histories. Editor and history
professor David Rich Lewis reports that the journal’s
strong reputation is drawing in the best scholarship produced
in years, focusing attention on USU as a national clearinghouse
for western history and attracting top students from across
the country to the history graduate program.
WHQ author Miles Powell (Winter 2012) won the Aboriginal
History Study Group, Best Article/Chapter Prize from the Canadian
Historical Association; Matthew S. Gilbert (WHQ Autumn
2012) won the Western Writers of America Spur Award for best
western short nonfiction; George Colpitts (WHQ Summer
2012) received the Robert F. Heizer Award from the American
Society for Ethnohistory for the best ethnohistorical article;
Steven Sabol (WHQ Spring 2012) won the Arrell M.
Gibson Award from the Western History Association for the
best article or chapter on Native American history; and Grace
Peña Delgado (WHQ Summer 2012) won the Coalition
of Western Women’s History Jensen-Miller Prize for women’s
history and the Bolton-Cutter Award for the best article on
southwest borderlands history from the Western History Association,
as well as the Judith Lee Ridge Prize from the Western Association
of Women Historians.
