The Middle Ground Journal is an open-access, refereed publication. Everyone, no matter where you teach, research and study, is warmly invited to contribute. The middle ground is the common space shared between teachers and students, between research and teaching, among all levels and types of places of learning, and among different areas of specialization and methodological approaches. We seek to nurture the common ground shared by all who are committed to the studying and teaching of global studies and world history, broadly understood. In particular, we seek to serve as the shared, common space between K-12 institutions and colleges and universities.
We invite submissions of articles and essays, as well as translations, fiction, and reviews of nonfiction, fiction, film, television, and other artifacts. We also publish reviews of textbooks and reflective presentations of teaching materials. We encourage you to submit a review of a book or other artifact already in your possession. Please contact the chief editor if you plan to do so. We call upon all contributors, whether of an essay, article, or review, to consciously address a broader audience beyond that of a traditional academic journal, and to shape the work so that it may be used in a classroom on as many levels as possible. We would like to particularly encourage contributions on teaching from teachers, independent scholars and students. Submissions for The Middle Ground Journal will be accepted on a continual basis. Please see the journal’s website for the submission guidelines.
All enquiries should be directed to the chief editor, Professor Liang, at HLIANG (AT) CSS.EDU or Professor Liang, The College of St. Scholastica, Department of History, Duluth, MN 55811, USA. Publishers should forward all books for review to the address above, with the books clearly marked for the journal.
