While we announce new books from our UWaterloo English faculty, alumni, and community, we don’t do the same for individual essays and book chapters. And yet, these can constitute tremendously important scholarly work–most scholars can cite essays that shifted their discipline, or to which they consistently return. For that reason, Words in Place is sharing some of the academic essays and book chapters published by our community in 2019. On topics ranging from refugees to Reddit, from psalms to science writing, our scholars have investigated it all. Read on to find out more.
