This blog will chronicle the genesis and development of the Digital Literature Review, Ball State English Department’s newest undergraduate academic journal! Our goal is to showcase the valuable contributions of hardworking, creative undergraduate students. This blog of the inaugural issue will be used to report interesting findings we come across in our research, discuss examples of haunting in literary and popular culture, as well as explore other themes central to this first issue. Through maintaining this blog we hope to create a more visceral experience, providing potential contributors with a point of reference, themes to contemplate and inspire if considering submission, and we hope to provide future readers with a taste of what to expect from the Digital Literature Review.
