As protests and rallies roll out across the globe, history can help guide the resistance to overreaching authority. One such despot was Queen Mary I, who was born on February 18th,1516 and is known for her brutal executions of Protestant believers, earning her the posthumous nickname “Bloody Mary.” In this article from our journal archives, authors Ruth Ahnert and S.E. Ahnert use network analysis of the surviving letters of an underground group of Protestants to determine how the community was able to rally and survive in the face of overwhelming systematic violence.

This article is free to read through 2/24.

Inauguration Day is upon us. As the presidency of the United States of America moves from one human to another, we reflect upon leadership and the role of charisma. Author and co-editor of The Journal of Interdsiciplinary History Robert I. Rotberg writes that "charisma is best understood as the inspirational component of the bond between leaders and their political and organizational followers that allows them to act as if they are genuinely inspired to maximize what they presume, or are led to believe, are their own interests." Check out this week's selection from our archives, free to read through 1/27.

"Consortium publishing, Jones said, pools both financial and intellectual resources, not only easing financial stresses but expanding the journal’s perspective....

This endeavor will more than triple African Arts' number of editors, drawing editorial input from not only fellow US universities — at the University of Florida and the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill — but also from an African institution: Rhodes University. The South African school will join the editorial consortium in 2017, led by Professor Ruth Simbao, who is also involved in a program in Africa aimed to improve standards in regional academic publishing."
