  • JSTOR Daily looks at how Buddhism came to the United States, first brought by immigrants and then embraced as an alternative by the avant-garde.
  • JSTOR Daily looks at the influence of the French Resistance on the playwriting of Samuel Beckett, himself a member of the underground.
  • JSTOR Daily looks at the many different metaphors used to try to illuminate Brexit.
  • JSTOR Daily notes that seal-watching boat expeditions need to give the seals more privacy, to avoid overstressing them and exposing them to the risks of fatigue.
  • JSTOR Daily looks at how letter-writing, as a literary form, has been so strongly associated with women and the feminine.
