Two Georgia Southern faculty appointed to editorial board of new interdisciplinary focused international journal

Dr. Patsy Kraeger
Dr. Candice Bodkin

Patsy Kraeger, Ph.D., an assistant professor in the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies at Georgia Southern University has been named the founding special issues editor of Local Development and Society, a new refereed journal being launched by the Community Development Society International and Taylor and Francis Publications. An editorial board of international scholars and practitioners is being assembled, including Candice Bodkin, Ph.D., who is also an assistant professor in the Department of Public and Nonprofit Studies.

Local Development and Society will support theoretical and empirical research in a diversity of local contexts, with the aim of strengthening universities and organizations that produce research about community development and society.

While this journal builds on community development, it is interdisciplinary in scope and seeks to encourage scholarship on the broad expanse of local development and society. Initially, the journal will publish two issues per year.
