January 6, 2020

On the UTP Journals blog, our authors go beyond the research in their published articles. The diverse content has authors expanding on their work, detailing their writing or research process, and placing their work within the current social context. This past year was a standout year for the blog, so we thought we would kick off 2020 by taking a look back at our top ten most read posts from 2019.
