Dear all,

You might be interested in the latest issue of the Baha'i Studies Review
(volume 10), which has recently been published and includes many members
of this list.

The latest issue includes surveys of methodology in Baha'i studies by
Frank Lewis, John Hatcher, Moojan Momen, Udo Schaefer, Will van den
Hoonaard; a first English translation of Turkish Baha'i
Writings; and a fascinating biographical essay on the philosopher Alain
Locke, founder of the Harlem Renaissance and first African-American
Rhodes scholar, who incorporated Baha'i thinking into his
ground-breaking work on multi-culturalism.
