New Journals Join Project Muse

The following journals, previously announced as joining Project MUSE, are now online:

** From the Penn State University Press:

Journal of Moravian History
One of the fascinating aspects of the history of Christianity is its incredible diversity of expression and evolution, particularly as Christianity left Europe, bound for the shores of America. The Moravian Church (Unitas Fratrum or “Unity of the Brethren”) arose in what is now known as the Czech Republic in the late fourteenth century. Fleeing persecution, the Moravians arrived in North America, settling especially in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and later in what is now Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The history of the Moravian Church is vital for understanding not only European church history but also the history of the church in North America.

Mediterranean Studies

The journal’s interdisciplinary approach includes work on the arts, religions, cultures, histories, and literatures of the Mediterranean world.

Seven titles join Project Muse

The following journals, previously announced as joining Project MUSE, are now online:

** From the Department of English, Georgia State University:

Studies in the Literary Imagination is a biannual scholarly journal focusing on special topics in literature. SLI enjoys a worldwide audience with contributing editors and authors who are considered the leaders in their fields. SLI is unique among scholarly journals in that it relies on an editorial committee to review proposals from potential guest editors, who then invite scholars to contribute articles exploring different aspects of a particular theme. One of the favorable distinctions resulting from this practice is that each issue is topic driven; in this sense, SLI serves more as a monograph series than as a typical journal.

** From the Duke University Press:

Cultural Politics is a welcome and innovative addition. In an academic universe already well populated with journals, it is carving out its own unique place—broad and a bit quirky. It likes to leap between the theoretical and the concrete, so that it is never boring and often filled with illuminating glimpses into the intellectual and cultural worlds.” Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Moving beyond the boundaries of race, gender, and class, Cultural Politics examines the political ramifications of global cultural productions across artistic and academic disciplines. The journal explores precisely what is cultural about politics and what is political about culture by bringing together text and visual art that offer diverse modes of engagement with theory, cultural production, and politics.

** From the Penn State University Press:

Preternature: Critical and Historical Studies on the Preternatural is an interdisciplinary forum for the study of the preternatural as seen in magics, witchcraft, spiritualism, occultism, prophecy, monstrophy, demonology, and folklore.

By bringing together voices from many disparate religious and secular humanist communities to talk about social transformation, political change, and the evolution of our religious traditions, Tikkun creates space for the emergence of a religious Left to respond to the influence of the religious Right and the distortions of global capitalism, while simultaneously critiquing reductionist views that sometimes prevail in liberal and progressive circles. The magazine, which began as a progressive Jewish publication, provides intellectually rigorous, psychologically sophisticated, and unconventional critiques of politics, spirituality, social theory, and culture and is known for its coverage of the Israel/Palestine conflict, social justice issues, and the environment.

Project Muse continues to grow, adding five new titles

The following journals, previously announced as joining Project MUSE, are now online:

** From the Penn State University Press:  Interdisciplinary Literary Studies

The hallmark of research today is “interdisciplinary,” and Interdisciplinary Literary Studies exemplifies the diversity, complexity, and rewards of integrating literary study with other methodologies. Drawing upon a broad base of critical theories and applying these to a wide range of literary genres, contributors reward us with daring interpretations, such as a mathematical reading of triangles in Robert Frost’s poetry or an “engaged Buddhist response to trauma” reading of Le Ly Hayslip’s Child of War, Woman of Peace. Editor Kenneth Womack, an author of both nonfiction and fiction (including John Doe No. 2 and the Dreamland Motel [Switchgrass, 2010]) has placed Interdisciplinary Literary Studies squarely in the middle of the conversation.

** From the Penn State University Press:  Soundings: An Interdisciplinary Journal

If “interdisciplinary” connotes anything, it should be improved communication across disciplines that fosters mutual understanding. This, in turn, advances our understanding of the deeply complex ethical and moral issues facing our world today. Acknowledging the need for diversity and integrity in speaking to these issues, Soundings promotes dialogue, reflection, inquiry, discussion, and action. These activities are informed by scholarship and by the acknowledgement of the civil and social responsibilities of academe to engage the world beyond the ivory tower.

** From the Penn State University Press:  Journal of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness

One particularly “hot topic” in education today is “assessment.” How do institutions learn about emerging trends in assessment? What pressing questions do all institutions face when it comes to assessing the quality and effectiveness of student learning? What are the best practices in promoting institutional effectiveness in the educational enterprise? The Journal of Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness, publishes scholarly research on the assessment of student learning at the course, program, institutional, and multi-institutional levels as well as more broadly focused scholarship on institutional effectiveness in relation to mission and merging directions in higher education assessment. JAIE is a publication of the New England Educational Assessment Network (http://www.neean.org), established in 1955 and recognized as one of the leaders in supporting best practices and resources in educational assessment.
