The Middle Ground Journal, a refereed and open-access journal of world history and global studies, is seeking qualified reviewers. Graduate students, K-12 teachers, independent scholars and professors are warmly welcomed. We currently have approximately thirty items available. Next call will take place during the fall 2012 semester. For a list of the available books, documentaries and other artifacts, please visit:
These reviews are due on August 31, 2012. To apply, please email the title/author(s) of the book/documentary, your contact information (e-mail, postal address, phone), and your full CV/resume to the journal's chief editor, Professor Liang, at HLIANG (at) css.edu. We are particularly interested in reviewers who are planning to use the book in a class, please note in your correspondence if this is the case. You will be notified by e-mail if you have been selected. Please also include information on areas of study that you would be willing to review for the journal so that we may enter your information into our database of reviewers. Because of the volume of correspondence we are unable to acknowledge every e-mail.
Because the guiding principle of the journal is to act as a bridge between disciplines, between teaching and research, between students and teachers, and between all levels of education, we encourage our reviewers to address the widest possible audience, and to discuss how the artifacts reviewed may be used in classrooms. Please consult the journal for guidelines and specifications. The journal is also seeking reviews from students and teachers of books and other artifacts (documentaries, films, music, art, and so on) currently in your possession, particularly those you have used in a course. Please contact the chief editor with proposals, or books you wish to review so that the journal may seek copies.
The Middle Ground Journal is published by the Midwest World History Association (MWWHA) and housed at The College of St. Scholastica, Duluth, USA. The MWWHA is a proud affiliate of the World History Association (WHA). We strongly encourage membership in both scholarly organizations.
