Happy Holidays, blog readers.
I am pleased to offer a (belated) welcome to Michaela Maxwell as the new copy editor for the blog of the APA.
Michaela previously served as one of our summer interns, and we are very happy to welcome her back to the blog in an expanded role. In addition to serving as the blog’s copy editor, Michaela is currently serving as the interim editor of the service beat.
Michaela is a student at Middlebury College in Vermont, and is currently writing her senior thesis on Buddhism and social inequalities, focusing on the ways in which early Buddhist texts dealt with notions of gender and caste, and how contemporary Buddhists might interpret these ideas in ways that could benefit social justice movements. You can read a bit more about Michaela on the About Us page and in her APA Member Interview.
We’re very pleased with Michaela’s tremendous work for the blog so far, and are very excited to have her on the editorial team!
