The Middle Ground Journal: Call for Submissions (4.0) and Reviewers (1.2)
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.
The Middle Ground Journal (ISSN: 2155-1103) is published by Midwest World History Association (MWWHA), and housed at The College of St. Scholastica. The MWWHA is a proud affiliate of the World History Association (WHA). We strongly encourage membership in both associations. We gratefully acknowledge the generous sponsorship and logistical support from The College of St. Scholastica, Duluth, Minnesota, USA.

Call for reviewers 1.2
The Middle Ground Journal, a refereed and open-access journal of world history and global studies, is seeking qualified reviewers.

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.
