We know there are die-hard JSTOR fans out there, and apparently, so does JSTOR. In an effort to merge current events with JSTOR-housed scholarship, everyone’s favorite archival scholarly database has created the JSTOR Daily, a magazine that publishes daily blog posts, weekly features, and a biweekly newsletter to “provide the backstory to complex issues of the day.”
It’s an interesting resource that could serve as a source of research ideas for students or even a teaching tool for faculty interested in finding links between news, current events, and academic scholarship. Take a look at some of their recent posts:
- Is TV for Toddlers Really That Bad?
- All the Young Dudes: Generic Gender Terms Among Young Women
- What Role Did Laura Keene Play on Abraham Lincoln’s Last Night?
- The Erotics of Backgammon
