One of the keywords of our time, ‘globalization’ frames how we understand our interconnected world. An ambiguous signifier carrying multiple meanings, the term is usually used to refer to the extension and intensification of social relations across the world. Many works have been authored that deal with various aspects of globalization. However, it is surprising that no critical history of the concept has yet provided a historical mapping of its conceptual origins, evolution, and genealogical lineages. This book investigates the meaning formation of ‘globalization’ by featuring interviews with twelve prominent academic pioneers of the new trans-disciplinary field of Global Studies, who were central in forging the ‘career ‘of the concept of ‘globalization’. Together with an introductory chapter, these interviews clarify how and why a previously obscure scholarly concept suddenly exploded in the public discourse of the 1990s. In particular, the interviews trace the processes by which economistic discourses of free market economics became the basis for the influential association of the meaning of ‘globalization’ with the dominant neoliberal framework of the 21st century. This book was originally published as a special issue of Globalizations.
Randall Sumpter questions the dominant notion that reporters entering the field in the late nineteenth century relied on an informal apprenticeship system to learn the rules of journalism. Drawing from the experiences of more than fifty reporters, he argues that cub reporters could and did access multiple sources of instruction, including autobiographies and memoirs of journalists, fiction, guidebooks, and trade magazines. Arguments for “professional journalism” did not resonate with the workaday journalists examined here. These news workers were more concerned with following a personal rather than a professional code of ethics, and implemented their own work rules. Some of those rules governed “delinquent” behavior. While scholars have traced some of the connections between beginning journalists and learning opportunities, Sumpter shows that much more can be discovered, with implications for understanding the development of journalistic professionalism and present-day instances of journalistic behavior.

Praise and Reviews "the book contains a lot of valuable information and advice on how to enter the world of journalism." NEWSCHECK The popularity of journalism as a career is only outweighed by the competitiveness of the trade, so that the warts-and-all view of the job presented here will prove all the more useful to the many would-be journalists wondering how to make the grade. Dean Short tells it like it is, showing the many ways in which a living can be made from journalism and offering practical tips and realistic advice on getting a start. Complete with mini-case studies and a variety of anecdotes drawn from his own wide experience, his is a lively, up-to-the-minute account that will enable readers to decide how seriously they hanker for the cut-throat world of the deadline.
Andrew Schulze was a white pastor of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod who spent his early ministry serving black mission churches in Springfield, Illinois (1924-1928); St. Louis, Missouri (1928-1947); and Chicago, Illinois (1947-1954). He was an early proponent of integration during these years, fighting continual battles to get black students admitted to Lutheran schools. In the 1930s, he began to lobby to end the mission status of black churches and black schools, a goal which was finally realized in 1947. In 1941 he wrote a treatise on race relations in the church, My Neighbor of Another Color. Schulze was behind the development of the Lutheran Human Relations Association of America (LHRAA), an organization officially begun in 1953. While the number of active LHRAA supporters only numbered a few thousand of some 9 million Lutherans in America, they were a particularly influential group in the area of Lutheran race relations. From the 1950s to the 1970s, the Lutheran Human Relations Association of America was based at Valparaiso University, in Valparaiso, Indiana. Schulze ended his career at Valparaiso University, serving as head of the LHRAA and as part-time professor of theology. The history of Andrew Schulze's life is significant in itself, but it also involves a number of areas that warrant further exploration: the problem of racism in the church, the impact of the Civil Rights Movement in the Midwest, and the interaction between churches and larger society.
