Each year E3W graduate students and faculty collaborate to write, edit and publish a Review of important works and archives in the field. Reviews cover works of fiction, poetry, ethnography and more. Students are also encouraged to interview important authors and review works of art such as contemporary film and theatre.

Xuan An Ho and Sophia Monegro will be serving as Co-Editors for the 2021 issue.
