About
The White Review is a quarterly arts, culture and politics magazine, published in print and online, and established on a non-profit economic model. Issue 1 is available now in bookstores everywhere and available by subscription. The website is updated with new, usually web-only content several times each week.
Edited, designed and defined by an emergent generation of London-based writers and artists, the magazine is creating a space for a new generation to express itself unconstrained by form, subject or genre.

The name – The White Review – is a reference to La Revue Blanche, a Parisian political, literary and artistic magazine which ran from 1889 to 1903. Politically,La Revue Blanche fought against the injustices of its time. In addition to defending Dreyfus as early as 1898, La Revue Blanche also denounced the evils of colonialism and the Armenian genocide amongst other events of political significance. It stood at the forefront of the avant-garde artistic scene, notably promoting the neo-Impressionists and Art Nouveau. Toulouse-Lautrec, Bonnard, and Vuillard were amongst the artists who illustrated La Revue Blanche, which also kept up to date with the wider artistic scene.

On the literary front, La Revue Blanche’s record is equally as impressive. In addition to publicising the ideas of major thinkers such as Nietzsche, Tolstoy, and Stirner, the journal played host to a new generation of major writers and thinkers with Marcel Proust, André Gide, Léon Blum, and Guillaume Apollinaire all contributing early writings.

The White Review is following in the footsteps of La Revue Blanche by providing a platform for a new generation of writers, thinkers, and artists to break through in an otherwise saturated industry. By offering a combination of unpublished fiction, essays on the arts and politics and long interviews with significant individuals in their fields, The White Review is reviving the spirit of La Revue Blanche, with its attendant openness to new ideas, art, literature, and radical politics.  -The White Review

GRANTA #109 / Work

Posted: März 4th, 2010 | Author: dk | Filed under: Culture, Literature, Politics | 18 Comments »

Most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else, but are our lives defined by the work that we do? Do our jobs reflect our passions and personality, or are they just a means to an end, a necessary evil to pay for the weekends? From the jobless to the workaholics, from Peru to Essex to Rwanda, GRANTA 109 tells the stories of how and why we work, and whether or not work has the power to make us who we are.

About
Granta magazine was founded in 1889 by students at Cambridge University as The Granta, a periodical of student politics, student badinage and student literary enterprise, named after the river that runs through the town. In this original incarnation it had a long and distinguished history, publishing the early work of many writers who later became well known, including A. A. Milne, Michael Frayn, Stevie Smith, Ted Hughes and Sylvia Plath. During the 1970s, it ran into trouble – dwindling money, mounting apathy – from which it was rescued by a small group of postgraduates who successfully and surprisingly relaunched it as a magazine of new writing, with both writers and their audience drawn from the world beyond Cambridge.

Since 1979, the year of its rebirth, Granta has published many of the world’s finest writers tackling some of the world’s most important subjects, from intimate human experiences to the large public and political events that have shaped our lives. Its contributors have included Martin Amis, Julian Barnes, Saul Bellow, Peter Carey, Raymond Carver, Angela Carter, Bruce Chatwin, James Fenton, Richard Ford, Martha Gellhorn, Nadine Gordimer, Milan Kundera, Doris Lessing, Ian McEwan, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jayne Anne Phillips, Salman Rushdie, George Steiner, Graham Swift, Paul Theroux, Edmund White, Jeanette Winterson, Tobias Wolff. Every issue since 1979 is still in print. In the pages of Granta, readers met for the first time the narrative prose of writers such as Bill Bryson, Romesh Gunesekera, Blake Morrison, Arundhati Roy and Zadie Smith; and have encountered events and topics as diverse as the fall of Saigon, the mythology of the Titanic, adultery, psychotherapy and Chinese cricket fighting.Granta does not have a political or literary manifesto, but it does have a belief in the power and urgency of the story, both in fiction and non-fiction, and the story’s supreme ability to describe, illuminate and make real.

As the Observer wrote of Granta: ‘In its blend of memoirs and photojournalism, and in its championing of contemporary realist fiction, Granta has its face pressed firmly against the window, determined to witness the world.’

RICHTIG ENTSCHEIDEN: 10 TIPS. Gruppendruck? Zu grosse Auswahl? Angst vor den Folgen? – Psychologen und Neurobiologen geben Ratschläge. // MEIN VATER, DAS KIND. Als ich meinen alten Vater im schmutzigen Pyjama im verdunkelten Schlafzimmer fand, wurde mir klar, dass ich ab heute für ihn Entscheidungen treffen musste. // WAS SOLL NUR AUS DIR WERDEN?

About
“Wired is a full-color monthly American magazine and on-line periodical, published since March 1993, that reports on how technology affects culture, the economy, and politics. Owned by Condé Nast Publications, it is published in San Francisco, California.
Wired’s editorial stance was originally inspired by the ideas of Canadian media theorist Marshall McLuhan, credited as the magazine’s “patron saint” in early colophons. Wired has both been admired and disliked for its strong libertarian principles and enthusiastic embrace of techno-utopianism, based on it’s founder’s belief that technology can change the world. Each issue reflects the magazines readership through innovative, sometimes experimental design, which often includes the use of fluorescent and metallic inks.


From 1998 to 2006, Wired magazine and Wired News (which publishes at Wired.com) had separate owners. However, throughout that time, Wired News remained responsible for reprinting Wired magazine’s content online, due to a business agreement made when Condé Nast purchased the magazine (but not the website). In July 2006, Condé Nast announced an agreement to buy Wired News for $25 million, reuniting the magazine with its website.” -Wired Magazine
