Spring 2009: Volume 16, issue 2 Welcome to The Journal of the International Institute online. This site features full-text articles from 1994-present. Founded in 1994, The Journal of the International Institute is published twice a year by the University of Michigan International Institute. The Journal provides a forum for international area studies specialists who seek to present their ideas to a diverse, non-specialist readership. Contributors are typically affiliated with the University of Michigan as faculty, students, alumni or visitors. Past contributors have included scholars from the social sciences and humanities, as well as professionals and activists with experience and knowledge about global processes, or specific areas of the world.

Some states might not be available while entry is ongoing.
About Volunteer Voices Volunteer Voices is Tennessee's statewide digitization program involving the state's archives, libraries, repositories, historic homes and museums. Its goals are to improve access to digital collections that document Tennessee's history and culture, facilitate use of these collections in K-16 classrooms and by the general public; and offer training opportunities for personnel to learn digitization standards and best practices. This new Volunteer Voices website offers a single access point for searching digital collections across the state. The current site searches the following collections: The Growth of Democracy in Tennessee, the collection that most Tennesseans associate with Volunteer Voices.
