But not one report of any folk theory explaining why all things scholarly are cursed with poor web aesthetics.

This looks like half a post -- did you mean to include some interesting articles here?

The articles are interesting, but damn that's an annoying screen transition. I mean who the hell uses a screen dissolve in this day and aage?

There's some good stuff buried under the transitions, with that special frisson of weird and/or secret happenings retold in academic journalese: "The revenant can appear also partially: he just peeps into a room or thrusts in his hand so that one can guess the presence of the whole of him. But in some legends the dead is visible only as a body part (e.g. a sawing arm (ERA II 70, 316 (5) Rakvere))." A sawing arm! (Maybe this is only spooky to me because of early Lovecraft influence, with his panicked professors footnoting unspeakable rugose things.)

Winning the award for extremely precise topic: a phenomenological analysis of sharing apartments in postwar Sweden.

(Also, cute bunny favicon -- not what one expects for a journal's site.)
