The global-e journal provides a forum for timely commentary regarding global events, processes, and concerns. Each issue is comprised of a feature essay by a leading scholar or practitioner offering provocative reflections on public issues, historical trends, theoretical debates, methodological challenges, and curricular concerns.
Originally launched in 2007 as a pathbreaking collaboration of global studies centers at six research universities, global-e has published more than sixty feature articles on global politics, culture, economy, environment, and more.  After a hiatus in 2015, due largely to administrative and funding issues at the partner institutions, global-e was re-launched the following year under the editorial leadership of the Mellichamp Initiative on 21st Century Global Dynamics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. We are furthermore supported by a distinguished editorial board and the Global Studies Consortium, an alliance of global and transnational studies programs on five continents.

global-e was founded by partners at the Universities of Wisconsin-Madison, Illinois, California Santa Barbara, North Carolina Chapel Hill, Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Washington.
