CANDICE QUINN BECOMES EDITOR OF THE ISSR

During its meeting in October, Pi Gamma Mu's international Board of Trustees confirmed the appointment of Dr. Candice Quinn to succeed Dean J. Fafoutis as editor of the honor society's scholarly journal, the International Social Science Review.  Dr. Quinn was nominated by the Communications Committee, chaired by Dr. Susan Kinsella, chancellor of our Southeast Region.

A native of Quebec City in Canada's province of Quebec, Dr. Quinn earned a B.A. degree in British, Irish, and Canadian history from McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, and an M.A. degree in journalism and a Ph.D. degree in history from Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisc.  In her Ph.D. studies, she concentrated in twentieth-century American history, European history since 1648, and the history of Africa.

Dr. Quinn is the director of communications and campus outreach for the Minnesota Arms Spending Alternative Project (MN ASAP) in Minneapolis.  MN ASAP disseminates proposals about military-budget decisions by the U. S. government.  She is also a member of the board of the St. Anthony Village Historical Society, for which she is overseeing a grant to transcribe the birth and death records and meeting minutes for the town of St. Anthony, Minn., and to place the information on the Internet.

Dr. Quinn has written numerous entries for academic encyclopedias.  Her chapter about the history of immigration in Minnesota is being prepared for publication, and she is writing a chapter for another book about Sherlock Holmes as a feminist figure.

 Dr. Quinn said, "It is a thrill to be appointed editor of the International Social Science Review.  I was drawn to the journal by the wide range of interesting topics from a variety of social-science fields.  I am committed to maintaining the journal's high standards and to taking it to a digital format, which will provide access to a much larger audience."

The new editor invites submissions of manuscripts from professors, students, and others.  "Please feel free to send me an outline of a paper," she adds.  "I can let you know whether the topic is something in which we might be interested."  Dr. Quinn also welcomes messages from individuals who are willing to referee manuscripts.  Such messages should be accompanied by a résumé and the volunteer's contact information.  Dr. Quinn's E‑mail address is [email protected] .
