We published our first edition of The Liminal on September 2, 2019. Please share out – the theme was fake news. We especially have 3 great pedagogy articles on how to teach or interrogate fake news. We also started out with our first 3 books reviews including one by eLCC’s very own Molly Smith. We’d like to thank all the reviewers and editorial people from eLCC who made this issue happen – Sherry Jones, Chris Luchs, Donna Hall and Heather Tobin. We had a great group of reviewers on this issue – Ryan Lambert, Chase Hart, Tina Morrell, Kelly Zepp and Tameca Coleman!!!
Just a cool technology note – if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, you’ll see the map that shows you how many downloads and where in the world the downloads are happening. If you’d like to be involved in any way in our next issue (author, reviewer, art work, editorial help, etc.) – please email email@example.com
