Editor’s Reflection: Summer 2022

I’m writing this shortly before CBE’s annual conference, to be held in August in Atlanta, Georgia. Many of the conference speakers have written for Priscilla Papers, and I’ve decided to provide a bibliography of these articles. The list below is select, rather than complete. One way I have kept it to a reasonable length is not including Mimi Haddad, Bill Spencer, or myself in the list; our roles at CBE would lengthen it beyond the space available. A complete Priscilla Papers index is available here.
