It features authors—be they professors, journalists, essayists, poets, or novelists—whose distinctive voices resonate both within and far beyond the confines of the academy. Artful, accessible, and analytical, their essays contribute to international dialogue, shape and frame national debates, and engage with enduring and fundamental questions.
