New Journal: Humanity

November 16, 2010, Volume 57, No. 12


Penn Press announces the debut of its newest peer-reviewed journal, Humanity: An International Journal of Human Rights, Humanitarianism, and Development, edited by Samuel Moyn, professor of history at Columbia University. Humanity is a semiannual publication dedicated to publishing original research and reflection on human rights, humanitarianism and development. An interdisciplinary enterprise, Humanity draws from a variety of fields, including anthropology, law, literature, history, philosophy and politics, and examines the intersections between them. Articles in the Fall 2010 issue covered topics ranging from human rights mainstreaming as a strategy for institutional power; to comparing methods of managing infectious disease on a global scale; to the realities of working as an unembedded journalist in Iraq. Articles are available for browsing at http://humanityjournal.org.
Penn Press also publishes Dissent magazine as well as nine other scholarly peer-reviewed journals in the fields of intellectual history, Jewish studies, American history, Hispanic and Luso-Brazilian studies, and eighteenth century studies, among others. The Press will launch a new journal in the field of historic preservation, Change Over Time, in spring of 2011. For more information, visit http://journals.pennpress.org.
