BREAKING: the BPR Joins the Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications

The Boston Political Review has become an official member of the Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications.


The Boston Political Review and its credentials were reviewed by the entire board of the Society. The Society then sought to recruit The Boston Political Review due to its “superb quality.” On the behalf of the Boston Political Review, the co-president and editor in chief, Quinn Chappelle accepted this offer from the president of The Society for Undergraduate Humanities Publications, Henry Jacob. Jacob also serves as the editor in chief for The Yale Historical Review.


The Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications is a consortium of over twenty elite undergraduate journals from across the country. The official mission of the Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications is to promote innovative, ethical, and diverse scholarship by encouraging the collective research and communities of all participating members.

It publishes over sixty articles annually, collectively reading over 40,000 pages. The Society is staffed by over a hundred undergraduates, with some of its member publications having an editorial and executive staff of eight persons, others maintaining an editorial and executive staff of thirty persons.


The Boston Political Review and the rest of Society of Undergraduate Humanities Publications attend a yearly conference.
