Founded in 2005, Chronos is the undergraduate history journal at Syracuse University. The submissions reflect the talent and dedication of Syracuse University students as well as the history department. We take pride in the essays chosen for publication because we believe that they offer unique and critical insight to the department as well as in academia. The core value of Chronos is simple: to present history with a modern twist. Through the online format, we hope to reach the broader history community as well as foster a strong sense of self within the Syracuse University undergraduate history department.
