Internationalization:  like many campuses, Emory is engaged in a major thrust to internationalize” its focus. Not everyone agrees on the nature or desirability of this process. And of course we historians have always had an international outlook. But the past year has seen such an impressive range of international experiences by history faculty and students that we decided to make foreign contacts the theme of this issue. –Editor
