World History Connected (ISSN 1931-8642), an affiliate of the World History Association (WHA) since 2003, announces its first issue (WHC 19.3) produced under the banner of its new publisher, George Mason University Press (https://journals.gmu.edu/whc).This issue’s Forum is devoted to several analyses and case studies of oral history as world history that open up new pathways to evidence and interpretations of both local and global events. The issue also includes a new feature, “Dialogues in World History” in which two world historians, here Patrick Manning and Tom Laichas, offer an accessible debate over a news-making book in the field, David Graeber and David Wengrow, The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity (2021). The Winter issue (WHC 20.1, forthcoming in early February) offers assessments of the current round of revision of World History Standards sweeping the country, and the response of educators. The Summer issue (WHC 20.2) will focus on “The American West in World History,” for which the Call for Papers is still active (contact Guest Editor Vera Parham at vera.parham@mycampus.apus.edu).

Those interested in submitting articles to the journal should email the Editor, Marc Jason Gilbert (mgilbert@hpu.edu), with the subject line, “WHC Submission,” adding their name and short title of the submission.  Prospective authors should refer to the journal’s “Submissions Guide and Style Sheet” before submitting their articles.
