We are pleased to present in the Fall issue of the World History Bulletin a special section engaging the work of Marilyn Lake and Henry Reynolds on constructions of race and related classifications in modern world history. The special section, guest-edited by Ian Fletcher, includes essays that draw on and expand the notion of a "global colour line" in various modern contexts. I am grateful for the hard work by Ian and all contributors.
With this issue, I begin my work as editor of the World History Bulletin. I am deeply grateful for the wisdom and diligence of the outgoing editor, my colleague Jared Poley, and hope that you will join me in thanking him for his years of service I this capacity to the World History community. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank the officers and members of World History Association--including you! for making this a vibrant and exciting community of scholars, teachers, and thinkers.
As always, the Bulletin seeks to publish "short-form" essays on all aspects of historical scholarship including pedagogy, research, and theory. Topics may include any period or geographic focus in history, and pedagogical materials such as syllabi or assignments are welcome. Historians and disciplinarily allied scholars interested in guest-editing a selection of essays on a particular theme are strongly encouraged to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warm best wishes,
