Special Issues

Over the years the Euphemism staff has produced a variety of special issues of the journal. Click on the titles to view.


The Normal Project is a collaborative ethnography compiled by the students in two writing courses at Illinois State University, a freshman writing class and a senior writing class.  Some of the student ethnographers who worked on this project are documenting their first encounters with Normal while others document their last impressions before leaving to go elsewhere.

Enjoy. . . and be quick about it.
