As we’re about to step into the halfway point of 2019, we thought we’d take a look back on everything that’s happened for us so far this year. We’ve had a very exciting last six months – from launching our brand new academic journal, to the release of the newest addition to the Grist anthologies, there’s plenty to look back on: and plenty more to come!
In January we were delighted to welcome new issues to our journals, Performance and Mindfulness and Teaching in Lifelong Learning. Both issues are packed with six fascinating articles written by the very best minds in the fields of Performance and Education, that explore innovative practice and theory from collaborative and often international perspectives. You can access both journals for free on our website, where you can also browse our entire collection of online academic publications.
Moving on to February, when we launched our brand new online publication; The Journal of Play in Adulthood. The journal is currently still open for submissions, and will focus on aiding the positive discussion of playfulness in adults, and the importance of play after childhood which, in turn, encourages positive attitudes towards learning, working and living. You can find out more about the journal by following the link above, and you can read the call for papers on our blog, where you can find information on the submission and peer review process.
March was a very busy month for us – firstly, the Fields Journal of Huddersfield Student Research released its much-anticipated fifth volume of work. As always, the edition includes high quality research from incredibly talented Huddersfield students from across all seven academic schools. You can explore everything from feminist studies, to computing and communication. You can access the fascinating new volume here and you can also read what the journal’s editors had to say about the milestone release on our blog.
The 21st March was a memorable day for us, as we celebrated the release of the latest addition to the Grist anthology family, Trouble, at this year’s Huddersfield Literature Festival. This collection of enthralling short fiction written by incredible up-and-coming writers, centres around the theme of protest and how rebellion can be found in all forms throughout everyday human experience. You can access this book on our website, and you can purchase a print copy here.
Thank you to everyone who has made 2019 an amazing year so far – we look forward to what the rest of the year will bring!
