Inside R Out?

Inside R Out? is a regular column by Digest magazine's creator, J. Curtis Main.  In the first few weeks of designing the digital magazine, Curtis began writing a "letter from the editor" called "Sound Off."  At first the column was meant as an introductory piece to each week's magazine.  However, it has since become an opinion column, with about half of the column pertaining to that issue's topics and the rest being whatever is on his distracted, energetic mind.

Curtis has obtained his Master of Arts in Women's Studies & Gender Studies at Loyola University Chicago, where he worked as a graduate assistant for the program as well as an intern for the Women and Leadership Archives.   He was born and raised in North Carolina, attending UNC-Chapel Hill for Biology and Psychology, with Women's Studies on the side (and his favorite).  His interests are radical social movements, especially involving race, gender, resource distributions, and sexuality.  Curtis  currently works in the Office of the Vice President for Student Development at Loyola University Chicago. He is also pursuing research and community work and activism regarding social justice and women's studies.
