Introducing the International Journal for Water Equity and Justice (IJWEJ)

Over the past decade, The Journal of Gender and Water (wH2O) has presented critical work at the intersection of global water and gender challenges, playing an integral role in advancing the conversation on this topic. With over 28,000 downloads from 183 countries, the journal's growth is a testament to its continuity and consistency, as well as the significance of its subject matter.

I am excited to share with our readers and authors that the academic journal, The Journal of Gender and Water (wH2O), has undergone a comprehensive rebranding effort. The journal's new name, The International Journal for Water Equity and Justice (IJWEJ), reflects a broader mission to advance scholarship and work that promotes not only gender equity, but also expands its scope to include issues around equitable access to water resources and environmental justice. The reimagined journal will address topics such as water policy, governance, sustainable water management, and the intersection of water and social justice. IJWEJ aims to create conditions for innovation, catalyze theoretical and applied research, and serve as a platform for exchange of information to solve critical water problems. The journal will include original contributions, research, analysis, review, and commentary, as well as multimodal publications such as photo essays and videos.

We are committed to publishing rigorous and impactful scholarship that is relevant to scholars, policymakers, practitioners, and newcomers alike.

We believe that this rebranding effort will help us better serve the academic community and advance our mission of promoting water equity and justice globally. We look forward to receiving your submissions and continuing to work with you to promote this important cause.

Sincerely,
Howard Neukrug,
Executive Director, The Water Center at Penn

Bibliotheca Dantesca is an international peer-reviewed open-access journal dedicated to Dante studies. The journal represents the result of a productive collaboration between the students of Penn's Italian Studies doctoral program, who were its first promoters, the faculty in the program, the Center for Italian Studies, and the Penn Libraries. The journal's purpose is to produce scholarship that investigates the work of Dante and its reception with a widely interdisciplinary perspective. At Penn, the Italian Studies program and the Center actively collaborate in organizing events devoted to Dante, such as Lecturae Dantis, talks, conferences, concerts, films, and theatrical performances. The Department of Romance Languages, of which the Italian Studies program is a section, regularly offers courses devoted to Dante and his world, in conjunction with the interdisciplinary program in Global Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Bibliotheca Dantesca thus consolidates the strong commitment of Penn and its Italian Studies community to Dante's scholarship in a timely way.
