It is my great pleasure to re-introduce PalNews this April. Our community, and indeed the world, has seen many changes since the release of the last issue in September of 2019. In the aftermath of the pandemic, communities are still recovering from the long-term effects of isolation and it is vitally important that we re-establish our pathways of communication.
PalNews has long been an avenue through which we share the interesting developments in our research, community projects, fieldwork anecdotes etc. This is a platform to share that which we are proud of and that which perplexes us, to update our colleagues across the globe, to enjoy in the exciting work being done in our community, and to hold space in remembrance of those who have passed.
I offer my sincerest thanks to everyone who contributed to this wonderful issue, and I encourage everyone to consider a piece for the October issue. There is room for a little bit of everything in PalNews, so if you are considering writing something, please do!
