UC Press goes Boom

The University of California Press plans to launch a scholarly magazine about California issues called Boom: A Journal of California.

From the release:
Headed by Editors Carolyn de la Peña, Associate Professor of American Studies at UC Davis and Director of the Davis Humanities Institute, and Louis Warren, UC Davis’ W. Turrentine Jackson Professor of Western U.S. History, the journal will include a wide range of works ...

... according to de la Peña, “To truly grapple with the crisis facing California, we have to gather new knowledge about who we are, how we got here, and what common ground can be built for the future. By featuring the work of researchers in multiple fields and combining that with community voices, we believe Boom will uncover fresh perspectives on the state we're in.”
Nonprofits have lots of room to bloom given the gaps left by the cuts to statewide coverage at California's largest newspapers.
