About this Journal
Edge was founded in spring 2008 with the intention to provide an opportunity for graduate students to gain professional experience in publication as book or film reviewers, referees, editors and authors. After several discussions with the ScholarWorks team at the W.E.B. DuBois Library at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and faculty and graduate students in the German and Scandinavian Studies program at UMass, Edge was established as an online, open-access journal. The graduate students involved in the creation of Edge include Delene Case White (founding Editor-in-Chief), Maureen Gallagher (founding Managing Editor), Victoria Lenshyn (founding Film and Book Review Editor), Diane Liu, Rachael Salyer, Juliette Brungs, Ute Bettray, Evan Torner, Tim Dail, Kyle Frackman, Laurie Taylor and Allie Merley Hill.
