New & Noteworthy
We have several new and reposted pieces published this past week including a piece by me on Rural/Urban boundaries on work by Daniel T. Lichter and Kenneth M. Johnson, and a particularly interesting read, Hacking Barbie, by Martha McCaughey and Beth Davison (I will be seeing the Barbie movie this weekend with my partner). In World Suffering, Mahala Miller writes about the risks and realities of bullying as school starts – click here to learn more.
