Farewell Zapruder World

June 13, 2023 Editorial Board 0

A lot has changed over these twelve years. The world has indeed changed. Counting the latest issue, we have produced seven issues, with topics ranging from anarchism to feminism, race, food, music, cinema, the welfare state, and social conflicts. Skeptical of academic rules and conventions, we have had long discussions on how to manage editorial choices and select articles.
