Columns

In Arts, Books, and Media, we feature book excerpts, book reviews, poetry, photography, fiction, images of visual artwork, reflections on art or on the life of the artist, and other creative endeavors by or of interest to women in the academy and professions.

Blog articles offer practical advice, personal experiences, and responses to current events from the vantage point of life in academia.

Interested in delving deeper to Christian thinking on vocation and the issues of our time? Gather a few folks and host a book club! Your book club might be in person with colleagues or online with friends.
