The February 2010 issue (Volume 39, no. 3) of Footnotes is now available.

If you weren’t able to make it to Boston for Midwinter, there are a few articles to fill you in with some of what went on. We also have some terrific articles. I hope you will all take the time to read through the new issue. Thanks again to the terrific committee for all the hard work!
