The Globalist is Yale University’s only undergraduate international affairs quarterly. Unlike many similar magazines, the Globalist is written, edited, and published entirely by undergraduates. Some of our stories are based on students’ experiences abroad, while others are crafted and reported from our dorm rooms in New Haven.
Each issue of the Globalist centers around a theme chosen democratically by the group. Recent themes have included Journalism, High Seas, Alcohol, and Language. The remainder of each magazine features articles in the following categories: Politics & Economics, Culture, Perspectives, Science & Technology, and Yale in the World. Articles can cover almost any global topic, and recent pieces have ranged from a soccer camp in Ghana to the politics behind robot production and development in Japan.
Our final issue of the 2009/2010 academic year focused on Invisible Economies. Article topics included sex trafficking, legal prostitution in Brazil, the market for Indian temple hair, and more. Check out the issue in its entirety here!
The theme of the first issue of every year is the reporting trip that members of the Globalist take each spring. For more information about this year’s trip to Indonesia (the reason for this blog!), see the About Our Trip page. And thanks for reading!
