The inaugural issue (Volume 1, Issue 1) of SPECTRA is dedicated to showcasing an array of research from students from Virginia Tech. As such, topics in this issue provide insight into the depth and breadth of research that is being undertaken in affiliation with the ASPECT program. Diverse subjects are tackled in this issue rather than looking at one topic in particular. The issues addressed include the production of knowledge, the relationship between heritage and memory, liberation theology and neoliberalism, power and democracy, as well as an exploration of risk and danger are featured in this opening issue. We invite you to join the conversation and offer your perspective and insight on these topics. — The SPECTRA Production Team, August 2011
