    FREE Special Issue: World History and Ethnic Studies
    AVAILABLE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 2024

    JWH associate editor Laura J. Mitchell introduces this free special issue in her introduction, “A Convergence Whose Time Has Come”:

    This year’s digital-only special issue brings interdisciplinarity into relief by exploring the relationship between world history and ethnic studies—related fields that benefit from mutual interrogation, as this collection shows. The context of 2024—both globally and in the U.S., where most subscribers to the Journal of World History are based—compells questions about the composition of the nation, historic constructions of identity along racial, linguistic, and gendered lines, the articulation and mobilization of power within societies and across polities, and enduring dynamics of imperial conquest and resistance. As scholars, teachers, and world citizens we are confronted with the continued rise in authoritarian politics; wars in Israel-Palestine, Ukraine, and Sudan; significant elections in India, South Africa, and the U.S.; and student protest movements challenging the status quo in the U.S., Europe, and the Arab world. So evidence-based understanding about the historical functions of race, ethnicity, cultural movements, and state power are especially relevant.
