As a part of my Fall 2014 course, "Ethnicity and Nationalism in East Asia," students edited, reviewed, and revised their essays, some of which are now published online. This journal publication project, which the students decided to title The Ethnic Spectrum, was an exercise in editorial decision making, drawing out and crafting themes out of individual essay topics, and participating in the academic peer review process as both an author and a reviewer. The first issue of our online journal can be read on our website, along with students comments. The second issue is going to be published in hard copy for the students, but abstracts of the essays and descriptions of the thematic sections are also available online. The students' work really shines through, I think, and I'm very proud to share the site as an example of the thoughtful, well-researched, and insightful undergraduate work here at Emory.
