Dr. Robbie Ethridge, Professor of Anthropology has been appointed Journal Editor for Ethnohistory (North American Editor). Dr. John Green serves as Editor-in-Chief of Community Development, the official journal of the Community Development Society.
Ethnohistory, published by Duke University Press, is the flagship journal of the American Society for Ethnohistory (ASE). The ASE is the preeminent international organization in its field and Ethnohistory is the top journal in the field in this hemisphere—arguably in the world. And therefore my editorship brings prestige and notice to the university.Ethnohistory, as the name implies, takes as its core the discipline of ethnohistory, which is any scholarship inspired by anthropological and historical approaches to the human condition, and especially the historical experiences of indigenous, diasporic, and minority peoples. Ethnohistory concentrates on populations in the Americas (North, Central, and South), however, exceptional submissions concerning other areas of the world are also published. The field of ethnohistory, then, is explicitly international and inter-disciplinary, and the journal reflects this by publishing works from the disciplines of geography, literature, sociology, and archaeology, as well as anthropology and history by authors from the world over. It is considered top-tier in most journal rankings and is cited widely.
The University of Mississippi Center for Population Studies now houses the Editorial Office of Community Development, the official journal of the Community Development Society. This peer-reviewed scholarly publication addresses the cutting-edge of knowledge concerning community development research, practice, and policy. It is published by Routledge/Taylor and Francis, with five issues per year. Dr. John Green, Director of the Center for Population Studies and Associate Professor of Sociology, will serve as Editor-in-Chief of the journal.
