Welcome New Confluence Editor, Dr. Steven Burr

We are excited and pleased to announce that Dr. Steven Burr is the new editor of Confluence.

Dr. Burr brings a wealth of experience to the journal and to the AGLSP. During his twenty years in publishing and editorial production he has managed and edited work for the American Heart Association, the American Psychological Association, Routledge/Taylor & Francis, Greenwood, and Wadsworth, among others. He currently serves as Director of Program Operations and Affiliate Instructor in the Graduate Liberal Studies program at Loyola University Maryland. His recent book, Finite Transcendence: Existential Exile and the Myth of Home (Lexington Books, 2014), examines the human engagement, aesthetically and existentially, with the finitude and limits that define human existence. Steven has an MLS degree from Loyola University and He completed his doctoral work in Liberal Studies at Georgetown University, where he also developed and taught courses until 2012. For any questions or comments about Confluence, Dr. Burr can be reached at sburr@loyola.edu or sb1017@comcast.net.

I’d like to thank the search committee Martha Banz, Vice President, and board members at-large Rebecca Sharp Sanchez, John Logie, and Wole Ojurongbe, for working with me in reviewing applications and interviewing applicants. We were happy to have a pool of strong applicants to consider and we feel we have made the right choice to continue Confluence’s growth and evolution.

Be sure to visit the Confluence website and note that the submission deadline for the October, 2016 Confluence issue is May 15,2016. Guidelines and more are on the website.

We thank our previous Editor Gary Swaim and Damien Ydoyaga for their excellent work on transitioning Confluence to an online format. We are happy that both will continue to work with Confluence as the transition continues.

Please join me in welcoming Steven to the AGLSP and Confluence.
