MORSL and the Radix Advisory Board are proud to present the Winter-Spring 2022 edition of Radix magazine, "Apocalypse and Rebirth."
"These are, to use university parlance, “unprecedented and unpredictable times.” Faced with a global pandemic, climate change, and a politically polarized landscape, we have become acutely aware of the precariousness of life on Earth. Some of us may feel hopeless and turn to eschatology, believing “end times” to be close at hand. Others may feel that this confluence of terrestrial disaster is precisely the shock to the system our world needs, and that we will emerge from these circumstances with a new compassion and appreciation for ourselves, each other, and the planet. Whatever beliefs you may hold about the future, we are decidedly on the verge of something, be it positive social change or complete societal unraveling. That is why we chose the theme of “Apocalypse and Rebirth” for our Winter 2022 issue.
In this volume, you will find, among other submissions, an exploration of feminist eschatology, an examination of eschataolgical themes in Nathanael West’s “Day of the Locusts,” and a poem on the human condition. We hope you enjoy this issue as much as we enjoyed putting it together."
We are delighted to offer free print copies of this magazine to our community. Grab a your copy on campus at the MORSL office or at one of our distribution stands:
