Volume 10 (2022)

Volume 10 is emerging

Dear VA Engage Journal of Student Scholarship readers: The work of the journal continues and despite our slower than anticipated pace in publishing articles, we are still eager to share meaningful and thoughtful student work with you. The first manuscript in Volume 10 has been long in coming and reflects the importance of pairing critical reflection with quantitative research. The authors initiated an original study and throughout the process challenged their assumptions about related topics including racism, political polarization, and patriotism. By conducting the study prior to the global pandemic, the Black Lives Matters protests, and the January 6th mob attack on the capital, but continuing to interpret the results following these monumental events, the study has extra resonance. We look forward to publishing more intriguing and insightful student scholarship over the next few months. Best wishes, Steve Grande, James Madison University Editor, VA Engage Journal of Student Scholarship
