Five Design & Merchandising students from the 'Design Directions' course are now published authors in the Journal of Culture and Retail Image
. The students were instructed in how to write traditional academic papers, synthesizing visual art ideas into a scholarly format for peer-reviewed publication. Professor Joe Hancock and Westphal librarian Ann Keith Kennedy served as editors and chose five out of the twelve papers to be published. The publication is permanently archived in the Drexel library.
