It is hard to believe that our term as Perspectives editors is drawing to a close. Over the past three years, we have strived to uphold the historically high caliber of the newsletter, to provide content that is interesting to senior scholars yet written in accessible and engaging language, while showcasing the theoretical diversity of the discipline. It has been a privilege and pleasure to work with the fantastic contributors who have shared their ideas in these pages over the past three years.
We recognize that the academic world has be-come increasingly crowded with venues for publication, including new journals and online opportunities like blogging. All of these compete for the short-form contributions that newsletters like this one have traditionally carried.
The vibrancy and relevancy of the theory newsletter only persist insofar as section members are willing to share their time to contribute their ideas. We know how easy it can be to fall prey to the bystander effect and wait for someone else to contribute. But whether you are an established senior scholar or a new up-and-coming theorist, Perspectives needs you to keep our great tradition of theoretical dialogue going.
