Everyone is welcome to join us for the second event of our Career Talk Series Young Researchers in Transnational American Studies!

Please see below for details or click here for the flyer.

On December 8, 2023, we will hear from five researchers who dedicate part of their work time to editing the Journal of Transnational American Studies (JTAS). JTAS has two editorial homes – one at Stanford University and the other at JGU’s Obama Institute – and the team behind it works from all over the world.

Next to presentations of their currents projects, we will also discuss aspects of screening submissions, finding reviewers, copy editing, and preparing galley proofs for publication on the eScholarship platform of California. The symposium will also include the way in which this editorial work aids in building a professional academic career.

Professor Alfred Hornung will host this event. If you have further questions about the event, please contact him at
