This posting is an experiment in providing timely access to the contents of journals received in the Goldwater Library. We will continue to send the monthly email "New Arrivals", which includes a list of journal issues received, for the foreseeable future.
Volume 1 of a new series marks the first issue of Pacific Arts, journal of the Pacific Arts Association, since 2002. A partnership with a new publisher has reinvigorated the journal's design and renewed its scholarly mission. Future issues will include peer-reviewed articles, new features, and reviews.
