T

his edition of our newsletter feels especially springlike to me. It’s full of newness, possibility, and growth in our field and in the work of our members. A new format for our annual conference. A new graduate program. New accessibility to data and new insights from research initiatives. And of course, new positions, new dissertations, and new publications. One reason I appreciate our newsletter is that this format allows us to see our individual work and our news in one collection, which gives it a different – and more powerful – feel than the same submissions would have MICHELLE LYNN-SACHS had if only in a listserv or a series of Facebook posts. Right now, I’m encouraged and renewed by the recurring theme of newness in our field. As always, thank you to our members for contributing and for sharing their ideas, news, and updates with us all.
