Mid-October Round-Up

Happy Tuesday!

Coming off an extremely busy weekend, The Academic Wino is still in the writing process of several new peer-reviewed journal articles to present to you all.

In the meantime, while I work hard to complete quality works for you all to read and enjoy, I’d like to present you with a round-up of various articles I’ve posted throughout the past couple of months, that I thought were fascinating and worthy of discussion.  Please feel free to click on any of the articles that sound most fascinating to you, and please feel free to leave your comments!
