We are pleased to announce Global-e, a new electronic journal that focuses on research, methodologies, and teaching global studies. The journal is available at http://www.global-ejournal.org.
Published on a quarterly basis, Global-e provides a forum for commentary on global events, processes, and issues. Each edition features brief essays by leading scholars and practitioners, offering provocative reflections on a range of topics with the aim of stimulating discussion among the global studies community. As each new edition is posted on the web, email announcements will be delivered to individual subscribers and to listservs associated with professional and scholarly organizations interested in global studies. We aim to both encourage circulation of commentary essays and stimulate discussion among readers. Accordingly, each essay will be open to reader response and deliberation.
Although available to internet users around the world, Global-e will focus initially on building relations among global studies programs. Commentaries will focus on public issues, theoretical debates, methodological challenges, and curricular concerns. The Global-e editorial staff will solicit essays of approximately 800 words, which is the standard length for opinion pieces in most newspapers, magazines, and journals. Our aim is to provoke discussion and to provide commentators with an opportunity to circulate their ideas in a new format.
The journal is managed by a collaboration of global studies programs:
Center for Global Initiatives
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Center for Global Studies
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
University of Wisconsin-Madison
Center for International Education
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
