Announcing Issue 20: Survival

Announcing Issue 20: Survival

This month n+1 turns ten. Stick with us.

Ten years ago this month we launched n+1. A lot has happened since then: wars, revolutions, and assassinations; inspiring elections, political stagnation, and economic collapse. Meanwhile technology continues to rearrange the ways we go through life and the sorts of relationships we have. When we started n+1, we wanted to insist that history in the 21st century could be something more than a lame consensus on “liberal democracy” plus the War on Terror. Ten years later, we have all the history we can handle. All the old questions are being asked again.
