First issue of Boom: A Journal of California just released!

Thoughtful, provocative, and at times playful, Boom: A Journal of California aims to create a dialog about the vital social, cultural, and political issues of our time, in California and beyond.

Headed by Editors Carolyn de la Peña, Professor of American Studies at UC Davis and Director of the Davis Humanities Institute, and Louis Warren, UC Davis’ W. Turrentine Jackson Professor of Western U.S. History, Boom includes a wide range of works, from scholarly articles forming the gravitational center of each issue, to shorter, often informal works.

The first issue of Boom publishes March 2011, both in print and online.
