Rob Rabe named Jhistory book review editor

David Mindich Discussion

The Jhistory steering committee* is pleased to announce Rob Rabe, an associate professor of journalism and mass communications at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia, as the new Jhistory book review editor. 

Rabe teaches media history, cultural studies, reporting, magazine writing and special topics seminars in the Marshall University Honors College.   He got his Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin- Madison and his research focuses primarily on U.S. journalism and politics between the 1930s and 1980s.  He is currently working on a book about the newspaper columnist Marquis W. Childs.  His wife Cory is an assistant professor of art history at Ft. Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and he splits his time between West Virginia and Colorado.

Please join me in congratulating Rabe and thanking him for his willingness to serve.

Rabe replaces Heidi Tworek, who stepped down as the Jhistory book review editor last year after performing an excellent job.

Jhistory’s reviews are archived by H-Net and are distributed to other academic lists.
