A word about each of the Editors…
Struggling to come up with anything to do outside of school (and in general), Joe hit up with the idea early in 2017 and gathered together a group of very (mostly) talented individuals to contribute to our (his) website. He has a special interest in international affairs but is ready to write about anything else that may be of significance for our readership.
Hoping to read History at University, Olivia fell into the tales of history from the comfort of her room, reading any and every story about the eras of tyrannical and benevolent monarchs; the chronicles of Londoners (as she herself is); the peoples long gone; the glorious fictions which were true in some bygone age. Looking at the world today through a uniquely historical perspective, we can only expect the unexpected parallels of lessons unlearned.
Literature & Theatre Editor
Áine has been referred to as many things throughout her life, but is currently the Literature & Theatre Editor. She is hoping to study either English Literature or a politically-based degree, both of which will no doubt be very useful when she becomes a full-time, out-of-work actor. Despite her affinity for Shakespeare and Bennett, Áine will also be writing political pieces whenever she feels like a rant. This will probably be rather frequent.
Middle East & Culture Editor
Jean hopes to be the very first White European to become Arab. With a strong interest in the Middle East and North Africa, Jean is hoping to study Arabic and International Relations at University. He is fascinated particularly by conflict and all its dynamics and irregularities. He also maintains a keen interest in photography and the visual arts, and the role they play in conflict areas.
With one eye on what happens on the ground and the other on what causes things, Jack hopes to study English Literature & French at University. Adamant that the modern (wo)man rarely acts out of pure impulse, Jack tries to understand and articulate the philosophies that create the crises upon which our society is built.
Ruminator on all things random. No Lord Jones, but only the catharsis of culture. Interested in covering the aesthetics of art, architecture and music but also tragedy in the news – all within an objective, historical context. Sam is a strong believer in meaningful photojournalism.
