Finland, Lapland, Russia and me

Eurozine Review

A centre receding

"Glänta" remaps migration; "Wespennest" heads north; "Mittelweg 36" engages in animal politics; in "Blätter" Marc Engelhardt slams the snail's pace of the Global North's response to Ebola; "Esprit" discerns the rehabilitation of the public sphere in Mediterranean youth uprisings; in "Letras Libres" Mark Lilla asks if there's a Plan B for non-democracies; "Res Publica Nowa" says that what Poland needs now is creativity; and "A2" finds the morphing of lit crit into advertising copy distasteful.

The New Presence
Share |




The New Presence was a member of the Eurozine network from December 2003 to June 2008.

It is a central European quarterly English-language journal, and is devoted to exploring current political, social, economic, and cultural issues as they relate to the region. In analytical articles that touch on the political, social, economic, scientific, and cultural spheres of life in the region, we seek to inform as well as engage the reader in affairs concerning central Europe. Our authors range from former Czech president Vaclav Havel and political analyst Jacques Rupnik, to noted poet Michael March. Our readers range from EU officials and ambassadors to journalists and students. The New Presence is published in Prague and distributed throughout the world.
