Sarah Higgins & Stephanie Bailey in Conversation

Spring 2022 co-editors Stephanie Bailey and Sarah Higgins will discuss the evolution of the issue’s theme and reflect on its contents—and some of what didn’t make it into the magazine’s pages but informed their thinking. They’ll also dive into their experiences of collaboration and how a shared methodological approach formed a foundation for how to proceed.
