Political power, money, legitimate representation: all of these are predicated on what comes of the U.S. census. The Georgia Review‘s Spring 2020 issue—coinciding with Census Day—presents authors’ and artists’ explorations in various genres of what it means to attempt representation of the diverse communities that comprise the United States.

Special features include “Un-Redacted: A Census of Native Land,” a collection of writings by Native authors on the legacy of settler colonialism in the U.S.; a section on the internment of people of Japanese descent in North America during WWII; and dispatches from an innovative research project on prison labor in the post–Civil War “New South.” Art by Eddie Arroyo.
