Ethos Journal Issue 1.1 Released

Click here to read the first journal issue of Ethos: A Digital Review of Arts, Humanities, and Public Ethics. The newly-published issue's theme is “Cultural Politics and Material Experience,” and its contributors address a variety of topics ranging from Carl Sandburg's poetry and political rhetoric of "hope" to Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho and 20th-century advertising.

Also, on Friday, April 18, Ethos published a podcast that features Drs. Matthew Taylor, Jane Thrailkill, and Tyler Curtain. This podcast is a conversation with these three faculty members on "The Future of Graduate Studies in the Humanities." After viewing our journal, we hope you'll return to the project for this podcast and our other weekly forum posts.

We're grateful for the wide-ranging interest and support that we've received from the department.  We hope you'll enjoy Ethos and consider contributing, if you haven't already.
