JAS Announces New Book and Media Review Editors!

On behalf of the Journal of Appalachian Studies editorial board, I am pleased to announce that Chris Miller and Kathryn Santiago will be joining the editorial staff as Media Review and Book Review Editors, respectively.


Chris, our new Media Review Editor, is an Assistant Professor and Archivist at Radford University. He has Masters degrees in Information Resources and Library Science, Music, and Southeast Asian Studies, and has completed much of the doctoral level coursework required for a PhD in Media Arts and Sciences. He brings valuable editorial experience to JAS, having served as the managing editor of the Journal of Burma Studies. Chris' research program compares the performing arts in Southeast Asian and Appalachian mountain communities.


Kathryn also brings impressive editorial experience to her position as Book Review Editor, having served as an editorial assistant for Collaborative Anthropologies, an editor of an anthology entitled Constellations, and a copy editor and proofreader for a collection of essays entitled Hank Keeling: A Life in Art. Kathryn earned an MA in Humanities (focusing on Literary and Cultural Studies) and a post-baccalaureate certificate in Appalachian Studies. She is a West Virginia native and is a Graduate Admissions counselor at Marshall University.
