Introducing the MIHE blog, a place for authors to share their thoughts and insightsOur authors are some of the leading lights in academia. They’re experts on politics, biology, history, economics, engineering, psychology and more. They’re lecturers, heads of departments, practitioners, lawyers, consultants, and business owners. They’re based all over the world in cities like Shanghai, London, Chicago, Melbourne and Johannesburg. And trust us, they have lots of interesting things to say!
That’s why we decided to start the MIHE blog: to showcase the thoughts and insights of our authors, and draw out the interesting topics they’ve written books and taught courses about. We hope these articles will spark a new idea or offer up a little kernel of knowledge you might not have known before.
We’ll also be hosting articles from those of us working in higher education. From the evolution of Cite Them Right from a successful self-published textbook to an online resource used by thousands around the world, to 10 questions with our Managing Director Milan Wielinga, these articles offer a peek into the world of university education and academic publishing.
This project has been almost a year in the making. We’d like to thank everyone who has contributed an article so far, to our website development team for building this blog, and all the hard-working MIHE employees who have spent time and energy getting it ready for reading.
So, without further ado, here are a few articles to get you started. We hope you enjoy reading them as much as we did:
- Dexter Booth, author of Engineering Mathematics, kicks off his series 'Why We Invented Numbers' with 'The Case for Mathematics'.
- Anna Sutton, author of People, Management and Organizations, underlines the vital role businesses must play in mitigating climate change
- Author of Discovering Sociology, Mark McCormack, describes how homophobia is used to police difference in society
- Jennifer Lawrence, author of Allied Medicine in the Great War, examines the many medical advances which sprung from the chaos of World War 1
- Author of Judgment and Decision-Making, Nancy Kim, explains how we make decisions in elections
We’ll be publishing new posts regularly, so make sure you sign up to our email newsletters for alerts. Stay tuned!
