Free Access reviews: 6 months in

by Joe Deville July 20, 2016

The Journal is around six months into its new Free Access book review policy. As previously announced, all pieces in the Review and Commentary section published in issues from 2016 forward will be available to access without subscription.

Over that period, the section has been extremely active, hosting a diverse range of reviews, as well as pieces and collections using new formats. This includes a review symposium on Fabian Muniesa’s new work The Provoked Economy, a to and fro between Stuart Kirsch and Fabiana Li in their Review Exchange, an interview between Lauren Tooker and Bill Maurer, and a translation into English of a classic but (at least in the anglophone academic universe) under-appreciated paper by Olivier Godechot.
