Volume 14 of the JSR Published

I've recently migrated this blog, and the older posts might not yet be satisfactorily cleaned up. Apologies for the temporary mess.

Today the JSR editors (Mike Pasquier, Luke Harlow, Art Remillard, and Emily Clark) published volume 14 of the Journal of Southern Religion. This issue has a great line up of articles, especially the forum on “Religion in the Early South” guest edited by Rebecca Goetz.

My technical innovation for this issue was generating EPUB and Kindle e-books of the issue. To do so, I used a Ruby program that I coded. The source code is on GitHub, and I released the utility as a RubyGem. I was surprised by how many people downloaded the Gem. Sure, the downloads were not in the tens of thousands, but at least sixty people have downloaded the latest version.
