Abstract: Like the cover selection indicates (Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, New York, 1969, Illustrations by Salvador Dali, provided by the Rose Rare Book Collection and University of Dayton Collections), we have seemingly stepped through the looking glass since the 2016 election. Instead of seeing public incendiary speech and rogue Presidential tweets on the decline, they are staples in the news cycle. So much so, that often the real news reads as satire. If we are truly living in an era where down-is-up and up-is-down, we need astute critique and painstaking analysis more than ever. And this particular issue of Peitho provides just that.
