vis-à-vis is expanding beyond the traditional issue-by-issue journal format. Hot on the heels of our early-view system, we have launched into the wild world of social media with our new Facebook group and microblog! This moderated site will be a platform for us to introduce and discuss interesting new scholarship from the wider literature, and soon will also be our forum for direct dialogue between readers, authors, and editors.

Special Issue: Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Graduate Students Lithic Symposium

A new issue of vis-à-vis: Explorations in Anthropology (Vol 10, No 2, 2010) is now available for online viewing. This special issue is dedicated to publishing research from the 2010 event "Between a Rock and a Hard Place: Graduate Students Lithic Symposium". This symposium was held at the University of Toronto from February 24-25 2010 and served as a venue for graduate students from across North America to share current research methodologies with their peers interested in lithic technology studies. The goal of the symposium was to facilitate scientific exchange, generate feedback, questions, and discussions that would help to advance innovative lithic research.

Included in this issue are an introduction from the organizers summarizing the event, seven papers presented at the symposium, and the complete list of abstracts.

Special thanks to Jayne Wilkins and Danielle Macdonald, who organized the symposium and served as guest editors for this issue.
