In “Time Stamp,” we sought to capture all the unraveling, uncertainty, learning, and vulnerability of the moment. Looking back, 2020 was more than the year of the pandemic: it was a year of experimentation, community growth, protest against racial injustice, and democratic demonstration. Throughout its pages, this issue contains subtle demarcations of time. The following writings offer a glimpse back at how its uneven progression shapes our understanding of the world around us. We hope that readers will simply be invited to listen and learn.

Cover: Cicely Carew, For what is bitter and what is sweet is all for my growing, 2020.
