Editor-in-Chief - Miranda Schriedel

I’m Miranda Schriedel and a fifth-year student studying History and Classics, emphasizing in Cultural Studies. Outside of the Journal of History, I am the Vice President of the Archaeological Society and a member of the Eta Sigma Pi Honor Society. I am also an employee of the Event Services portion of the Office of Student Life on campus. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching crime shows, and having game nights with my friends. Once I graduate, I plan to become a Paralegal and then go to law school to become a lawyer.





Assistant Editor-in-Chief - Kendra Erickson

I’m Kendra Erickson, and I’m a third-year writing major. I am an Honors student at GVSU. In my free time, I enjoy baking, swimming, journaling, and playing with my silly dog Luna. After graduation, I plan on working in the technical writing or user experience field.








Editor - Joshua Maurice

My name is Josh Maurice, I’m a junior, and I am a history major. My favorite topic is antiquity, but I love the evolution of human society prior to that also. In my free time I like to hunt, fish, and swim. I would like to use my degree to get into field archaeology, either in cultural resource management or future academia. At some point after that I would like to go to grad school. .








Assistant Editor-in-Chief - Benjamin Joseph

My name is Ben Joseph. I am a senior, and my major is history. I’m particularly interested in early-modern Europe, history of religion and spirituality, and German history. In my free time, I love to go hiking, camping, and kayaking (when the weather is warm). There is something very inspiring and rejuvenating about being in nature. And after I graduate, I am considering going to grad school. I think it would be really cool to work in archives.







Editor - Hannah Derwent

I’m Hannah Derwent; I’m a fourth year English major with an emphasis in language and literature. At GVSU, I serve as Financial Officer for the Beekeepers Club and work as a Lead Writing Consultant in the Writing Center. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, running, and making new Spotify playlists..
