We would like to give a warm welcome and congratulations to everyone added to our editing team this year. We've taken special consideration to diversify the academic years represented on the team and hope it will provide fresh perspectives and long term involvement in our publication. This year presents our team with unusual and unexpected challenges at every turn but we are working hard to ensure things operate smoothly.
While our first-semester edition generally focuses on second-year Ethnographic Encounters projects, we have had to adapt our approach. Due to COVID restrictions, many students were unable to carry out their fieldwork projects and instead did reflexive reports and reflections on ethnographic material. We hope to publish some of these reports as well as personal reflections, and general academic papers. It is unlikely that this year's journal will justify printing expenses so we are, unfortunately, only going to be digital this year.
Stay tuned for any further announcements and thank you for your support as always.
Katy and Rebecca,
Editor's in Chief 2020/21
