The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies


The Middle Ground Journal: World History and Global Studies ( (ISSN: 2155-1103), is an open-access, refereed, and nonprofit journal published by the Midwest World History Association ( We do not charge fees of any type to authors, reviewers, or readers. Everyone, no matter where you teach, research and study, is warmly invited to contribute. We are the common ground shared by all who are committed to the studying and teaching of global studies and world history, broadly understood. In particular, The Middle Ground seeks 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 and reviews of nonfiction, fiction, film, television, and other artifacts related to world history or global studies. 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. 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 particularly encourage contributions on teaching from teachers, independent scholars, and students. Please see the journal’s website for the submission guidelines before submission. Please note that because of the educational mission of the journal, your submissions and correspondence may be used to teach student interns. An important part of their education is in scholarly professionalism and confidentiality. Your CVs/resumes are never shared with student interns.


All inquiries should be directed to the chief editor, Professor Jeanne E. Grant, at CHIEFEDITOR (at) MIDDLEGROUNDJOURNAL (dot) COM. Publishers should contact the chief editor before sending books for review to the address above, with the books clearly marked for the journal.


The Middle Ground Journal is housed at Metropolitan State University and is published by the Midwest World History Association, an affiliate of the World History Association. We encourage membership in both associations. We gratefully acknowledge the generous sponsorship and logistical support from Metropolitan State University, Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA.
