Fall 2019: Life & Death

The search for meaning and the need to create it has everything to do with life and death. What makes a life worth living? What happens after we die? Both questions are unanswerable, but we exist within systems of power that fight to define boundaries of existence. In this issue, we offer you a feminist reworking, a disruption, and a transformation of predominant discourses of life and death.



Spring 2018: The Anxiety Issue


The world ridden with suffering at the hands of imperialism and transnational capitalism creates a particularly pressing set of anxieties, but anxiety, instability, and non-being are necessary parts of life that can be managed in a million different ways. Each possibility is its own universe, revealing the different ways we can care for ourselves and the world we live in. We should not resign ourselves to the Euro-American model that deals with an imminent fear of death by accepting a vision of the self as always punctured with a lack. In this issue we show that poetic and theoretical investigations of anxieties can reveal important facts and patterns about how objects, things, and people interact, and even lead us to avenues for change.



Winter 2018: The Fetish Issue


Our print issue theme for Winter Quarter was Fetish, in which we grapple with attachment, displacement, and paradox. In this issue, we are interested in thinking about fetishization not just as a projection of a set of desires or imaginations onto things and people, but also as a rhetorical form or logic, a structure of desire, and a displacement of value.



Fall 2017: The Divinity Issue


Divinity is often understood to be transcendent, pure, and usually religious. But the idea of divinity can also create an incredible space for new feminist discourses that seek to meaningfully situate ourselves in the web of neoliberal capitalist empire. In this issue, we present to you a rethinking, remixing, and repurposing of divinity.
