A campus tabloid that makes a statement, The Globalist is relaunching in 2021-22, initially online, and then in print form ideally in April of next term.

The Globalist is going to cover what’s new around the world, something quite different than what is often called news. Doomscrolling Twitter or the Guardian is all too commonly a feedback loop with no end. The real forces of novelty that allow us to actively shape and understand events are more likely to be discovered in books, technologies, and art created over a longer period than the cultural and political scandals, however delicious, that keep us hooked to a 24-hour mind-meld of mental sewage.

“Bias” and partisanship are never going to be a problem at The Globalist, as our writers will seek the most complete perspective on every topic discussed. There is to be no one-sided conformism or equally voguish contrarianism, but ideally, much controversy and debate.

As a genuinely international magazine with student contributors that will bring a multitude of perspectives to universal issues and themes, The Globalist is to challenge individual and collective parochialism at a period when the expression of both is de rigueur around the globe. Whether we come from India, China, here in Britain, or elsewhere, we recognise that the human drama is visible everywhere, and should not be terrified into depicting or attempting to resolve the problems of one another.

As part of our inherent capacity to begin anew, intersubjectivity is a global and total characteristic that is more awesome, uncanny, strange, and foreboding than the most petty habits and practices that prevent us from seizing the day.

The Globalist will be a voice that everyone remembers. We encourage you to read and write for us.
