Middle Ground Journal Book Review Working Group, Student Intern Selection

Another Book Review Working Group student intern selection! “…. I like how this book deals with a (relatively) current events issue, the Hait[ian] earthquake, but also delves into the dynamics [of] history, identity, etc. It would be interesting to see how the idea of a “new Haiti” reappears throughout history, and particularly what that implies for today ….” — an excerpt from the student intern’s recommendation.

A new Middle Ground Journal student internship program — The Book Review Working Group, consisting of ten undergraduate and graduate student interns. The Middle Ground is integrating student interns into all phases of the book review process, beginning with researching and recommending books to acquire. Student interns study The Middle Ground’s published reviews, investigate comparable journals and publications, and present annotated book lists to explain and justify their recommendations. These lists are then discussed and debated by the student interns. The chief editor makes the final decision. Over the summer, these students are assigned to different publishers to study their history and publishing focus, to study different genres of reviews (NY Review of Books, TLS, London Review of Books, New Yorker, NYT, Washington Post, various online journals and reviews) — as we research, questions, discuss, and debate, we will also formulate new questions for future reviewers to address.

The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies (ISSN: 2155-1103), is an open-access, refereed and nonprofit journal housed at The College of St. Scholastica and published by the Midwest World History Association, an affiliate of the World History Association. We do not charge fees of any type to authors, reviewers, or readers. Please check our Submission Guidelines page for information on our open-access policy and detailed instructions on style and formatting.
