The August 2010 issue (Volume 40, no. 1) of Footnotes is now available.

If you weren’t able to make it to the Annual conference this summer, you will find a number of recaps in this issue. You will find some great feature articles, too. We invite you all to take some time to read through the new issue. Thanks again to all committee members and all the authors for their contributions!
