Issue 86.3/4 Table of Contents

This week issue NDQ 86.3/4 went off to our publishing partners at the University of Nebraska Press. I think I can speak for the entire editorial board when I say that we’re proud of this issue and excited to get it into the hands of our readers! 

Look for this issue to appear in mid to late November. As a bit of a tease, find the table of contents below, and if you see your name, consider sharing this on social media or at least telling your friends, partners, colleagues, and random strangers. It goes without saying that NDQ relies on our outstanding contributors, subscribers and, of course, editors, to thrive. Please consider submitting to NDQsubscribing, or downloading our previous volume.  For some more content from this issue, go here.
