The Middle Ground Journal is pleased to announce a cooperative agreement with the North American Taiwan Studies Association's (NATSA) 2011 Conference. As a part of our ongoing efforts to seek the middle ground between different areas of historical and global studies, the journal has reached an agreement with the 2011 NATSA Program Committee, wherein theey will review and recommend panels of papers representing the latest in Taiwan studies, and the journal will review and publish this cutting edge scholarship. We encourage you to participate in the conference, their call has been posted below.
I will continue to engage other conferences and organizations to reach similar mutually beneficial agreements. These agreements will be announced as they come to fruition.
