Editor’s Corner

Jennifer Castle


It often feels like I’m dragging myself across the finish line of an academic year, but it honestly just feels so much worse since the pandemic. I suspect many of you are also feeling some level of exhaustion, so writing and publishing may not be a priority. I get it, which is why DttP might seem a little light of late. That being said, since GODORT is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and I thought it’d be worth taking a look at early publications to see how far we’ve come. The oldest issue available online is from November 1974, and I found a piece written by Jaia Heymann, who was elected chair of the Clearinghouse September 1974 through March 1975, and later stepped into the role of editor in September 1976 and stayed until June the next year. It’s quite funny and interesting that some of the same problems DttP was experiencing then are still happening, including the need for content. I hope you take the time to read her piece!
