Gorffennol student journal

Gorffennol student journal

Gorffennol is the Welsh for Past. It is the online student journal of the History and Classics Department at Swansea University. It produces two journal issues a year as well as regular blog posts. It is run by an editorial team consisting of 10 students and two members of staff from the Department. The online journal is published biannually and showcases outstanding student assignments from all subject areas in our Department (hence ‘Past’ as this includes everything from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome through the Medieval period to the early modern and modern periods). On our website, you can also find regular blog posts by students and staff on module-specific research. Gorffennol works as a pilot project not only to highlight our department’s student research culture, but also to help students increase their career skills by providing them with editorial experience.
