NEW RELEASE
Issue 81.1, "Text as Memoir," Part II
(Spring 2016)

The release of 81.1, "Text as Memoir," Part II, marks a significant moment in the history of SAR. This issue marks the journal's return to a regular quarterly publication schedule, which had, until recent years, been the format since the beginning of publication in 1935. This means that quarterly numbers will now be distributed in March, June, September, and December.
