Dr. Nova Robinson - Indexing the Routledge Global History of Feminism


I am the co-editor with Bonnie G. Smith of the Routledge Global History of Feminism. This forty-essay anthology, which is under contract with Routledge, is the first volume to compile articles from leading experts on feminism as an idea, a practice of everyday life, and a political undertaking across the globe. In creating the index of the book, my student research assistant will have a hand in shaping the reader’s experience with the text. A good index can enhance a reader’s experience, especially of an edited collection. Conversely, a bad index can impede a reader’s access to information. Indexing this volume will give my student research assistant a front-row seat to how the academic publishing world works. The student selected for this research assistantship will walk away from the project with increased professional formation on several fronts, but especially project management and teamwork/collaboration.
