From exploring the pain of dementia, to parent-child bonds formed through reading, the new online Journal of Family Life continues the path-breaking work of the Emory Center on Myth and Ritual in American Life (MARIAL).
The journal is currently accepting submissions on how families are adjusting to the recession. "We are interested in stories, rather than statistics, about family budgets, unemployment, searching for work, and paying bills and the mortgage," says Journal editor Marshall Duke, a child psychologist. "We want the Journal of Family Life to be a forum for how family life has changed because of the economy."
