Political Science Professor Part of New CSU Journal

Cal State San Marcos political science professor Xiaoye She is part of a new online journal with a mission of creating a more global California by showcasing the scholarship and work of faculty, students and staff of the California State University system.

Xiaoye SheShe is an associate editor and member of the inaugural board of csuglobal, which was launched last month by the Global Studies Institute of Cal State Long Beach. Csugobal is an open-access, interdisciplinary academic journal and current affairs ’zine that’s “designed to explore the increasingly global role of the state of California by drawing on the rich intellectual resources of the faculty, staff and students across the system while offering a platform for public engagement and debate.”

The inaugural board consists of 17 people representing 13 CSU campuses as well as the Chancellor’s Office.

“Being a part of this venture means a lot to me,” She said. “It is always exciting to meet with people who share similar passions and vision for a global CSU. Our board is also highly interdisciplinary, with members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, from social sciences, humanities, science, engineering, etc.” 

She’s interdisciplinary research examines changing dynamics of economic development, social protection and development cooperation among emerging global South countries in the Asia Pacific, such as China, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.

She is one of the editors of the peer-reviewed csuglobaljournal under the theme Networks of Economy and Trade. For the first issue, she wrote an article titled “Economic Globalization and Local Transformations in California.”

She was invited to join the board last fall after attending a conference and leading a workshop on simulations in the political science/international relations classroom. Her primary responsibilities are putting together for calls for submissions; soliciting, reviewing and screening initial submissions; and recruiting for the peer review process. She also helps facilitate communication between csuglobal and CSUSM.

The launch of csuglobal was co-led by Richard Marcus, founding director of the Global Studies Institute, and Alison Holmes, the publication's editor-in-chief, supported by Cal Poly Humboldt.
