Chair of History Department and Student Publish Research in Italian Naval Journal

05.7.2013

HPU High Point UniversityHIGH POINT, N.C., May 7, 2013 – Dr. Frederick C. Schneid, chair of the history department and professor of history, along with Joshua Stutts, a senior majoring in history, recently collaborated on an article, titled “The Condition and Operations of the Sardinian Navy during the Second War of Independence.” The article was published in the March issue of the Italian Navy historical journal, “Bolletino d’Archivio dell’Ufficio Storico della Marina Militare.”

Schneid explains the article examines the navy of the Kingdom of Piedmont-Sardinia during the Second War of Italian Unification (1859-1861).

“The small, but modern, steam-powered navy worked cooperatively with their French allies to transport French troops to northern Italy to help fight the Austrians,” Schneid says. “As the war progressed, the navy provided vital logistical support for the French fleet in the Adriatic Sea.”

Schneid notes the publication of this article would not have been possible without the extensive support and aid of Stutts, and is the first of several student-faculty collaborations for the department.

In particular, Stutts worked alongside Schneid on the article, sifting through documents from the Italian Navy Archives. He was required to translate handwritten documents, gather data specifically on logistical aspects of the naval operations, study the operations of steam-powered naval vessels and analyze the data, which was ultimately incorporated into the article.

“Josh’s work was vital to the quality and content of the publication,” Schneid says. “We have a number of our best majors who are eligible to take this Collaborative Research course and work with faculty who are currently conducting extensive research with the intent to publish.”
