Randolph English professor Laura-Gray Street edited two recently published journals.
She co-edited the On Rivers issue of About Place Journal, the literary journal published by the Black Earth Institute, with Teresa Dzieglewicz and consulting editors Lucien Darjeun Meadows and Irene Vázquez.
Street was named a Black Earth Institute Fellow last summer. The institute was founded in 2004 as a progressive think tank dedicated to creating a more ethical world. The artists and scholars who make up the group focus on social justice, environmental issues, and the spiritual dimensions of the human condition in their art and work.
Fellows guest edit an issue of About Place Journal, choosing a theme to promote the institute’s goals in art, and participate in panels and readings at conferences, universities, and public gatherings.
The On Rivers issue can be found at https://aboutplacejournal.org/issues/on-rivers/.
Street also worked with The Global South, an interdisciplinary journal focusing on how world literatures and cultures respond to globalization, on its EcoArts Issue, which she co-edited with Ann Fisher-Wirth.
The Global South is published by the Indiana University Press and can be found at https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/51193.Tags: English, English literature
