A Note from the Editors

As the inaugural editors for ideaFest Journal, we are so grateful to have had the opportunity to help create a space for the students, staff, and faculty of Humboldt State University to share their work with a wider audience. We feel lucky to have had the chance to collaborate with the reviewers, administrators and authors who have contributed to the journal. We’d like to thank the Dean of the University Library, Cyril Oberlander, for his work in launching the journal as well as Paola Rodriguez Hidalgo and Amy Rock for their willingness to review submissions. Their insights and suggestions were invaluable. We’d especially like to acknowledge Janelle Adsit for her dedication to this project. She has guided us every step of the way.

We want our readers to know that we tried our best to incorporate the ethics and practices of Intersectional Feminism into the editing process. We acknowledge that there may be gaps in our attempt to incorporate a multiplicity of voices and perspectives. We hope that future editors will also continue in this vein and we look forward to seeing how the journal will grow in years to come.
