Meet Our NSR Student Editors — Chris Rehkamp, Social Media Editor – The North Star Reports – Sponsored by The College of St. Scholastica and The Middle Ground Journal
Chris Rehkamp, NSR Social Media Editor. The College of St. Scholastica, graduated 2009 with a BA in Language and International Studies (now GCL). I began my involvement with The Middle Ground Journal shorty after returning from Spain in 2012 while living in Lincoln, Nebraska.
I spend most of my time working in some portion of the food system. From growing plants and building gardens to helping foodie entrepreneurs in the Washington, DC area develop their business’. I first became interested in food as a social justice and economic issue globally while working with the Student Campaign for Child Survival. Later, while working on farms I gained a great respect for the labor and love that goes in to our agricultural system. Additionally, I love reading and ranting about history. Trying to understand the series of events that led us here and what that might say about who we are has always captivated me. Finally, Spain has a particular place in my heart and so I read and share its happenings often.
I am excited to join NSR as a social media editor because The Middle Ground Journal and NSR are offering an open source, interactive learning community. A venue for many people with different perspectives and experiences can share, create, and debate ideas. In our world of information this kind of open access for all interests and people is refreshing. We all have unique perspectives and insights on our world, I hope to bring mine to NSR as a social media editor and gain the perspectives of so many other readers and contributors.

The North Star Reports: Global Citizenship and Digital Literacy, The College of St. Scholastica and the scholarly Middle Ground Journal’s online learning community and outreach program with undergraduate and K-12 classes around the world. The North Star Reports has flourished since 2012. For a brief summary, please see the American Historical Association’s Perspectives on History, at:
The North Star Reports publishes edited essays from our students, particularly from those who are currently stationed, or will soon be stationed abroad. Students have reported from Mongolia, Southern China, Shanghai, northeastern China, The Netherlands, Tanzania, Ireland, England, Finland, Russia, and Haiti. We also have students developing reviews of books, documentaries, and films, and analysis of current events from around the world. We will post their dispatches, and report on their interactions with the North Star Reports students and teachers. We thank The Department of History and Politics and the School of Arts and Letters of The College of St. Scholastica for their generous financial support for The North Star Reports and The Middle Ground Journal.
