Traces: the UNC Journal of History is an award-winning student-run journal based in the UNC History Department. It was created in 2011 by UNC-Chapel Hill students G. Lawson Kuehnert and Mark W. Hornburg, with support from the UNC-Chapel Hill Parents Council.

Over ten years of operation, run entirely by UNC students, Traces has twice been the recipient of Phi Alpha Theta’s prestigious Gerald D. Nash History Journal Prize (2013, 2017) and student research featured in the journal has been recognized by Phi Alpha Theta and other university and national organizations for their exceptional quality.

Traces is currently edited by Javier Etchegaray.

A partial record of previous student research featured in Traces can be found in the Carolina Digital Repository.
