Vol. 28, Number 4, Fall 2010. Kristy's piece is one of seven invited articles for this special issue, "Remembering the Past, Engaging the Present: Essays in Honor of Moises Sandoval." Sandoval was a pioneer in U.S. Latino Catholic Studies and the essays that appear in this special issue show how U.S. Latino Studies are rooted in and have branched off of Sandoval's scholarship and activism.

Kristy's article "Embodied Research and Writing: A Case for Phenomenologically Oriented Religious Studies Ethnographies" has just been published by the Journal of the American Academy of Religion and is available online in PDF at: http://jaar.oxfordjournals.org/cgi/content/full/lfq079?ijkey=mqul49rkIzRpVIA&keytype=ref

This article will appear in the journal's hard copy in the Spring of 2011.
