This is some truly exceptional work by outstanding scholars – I invite you all to subscribe to the website. It’s less that $5 per month, which is a steal. In addition to the monthly journal, there are many other components to the site including community forums and a student portal jammed packed with useful information. And coming in a week or so…The site will feature a Creative Culture segment featuring art, fiction, and poetry, available only to subscribers. So stay tuned – this feature will cause quite a stir I am certain.
