The Boothby Review was conceived as a way to celebrate and support faculty intellectual engagement. The initial thought was to create a journal for faculty to publish academic papers given at conferences and graduate school seminars. But we expanded the scope to include essays written for the journal as well as creative nonfiction, book reviews, 电影 reviews, and interviews. Because the journal is digital, we are unencumbered by length and cost. We do not publish pieces on education (that would fit nicely in Country Day Comments), nor do we accept articles that are political. The staff of the Boothby Review is committed to launching a journal every May that is intelligent and enjoyable to read.
