The Warwick Globalist is the highest quality student-run magazine at the University of Warwick. We aim to provide our readers with subjects and perspectives that might not otherwise be seen by our readers. We are always looking for people to get involved in our graphics, finance, marketing, web and writing teams. Have a look at our website for great content across our Arts & Culture, Politics & Economics, Science & Technology, Perspectives and, the University focussed, World@Warwick section.
The Warwick Globalist is going into its fifth year at Warwick, and we are looking to build on the brilliant work of previous years to make this year the best ever. We are currently establishing the International Globalist network with similar magazines at universities in London, Cambridge, Paris, Cape Town, Berkeley, Fulda, Wellesley and Zurich. We are working together on our, particularly investigative, journalism, building a website that showcases articles from all our members and we are hoping to have a conference of our European members towards the end of the year.
We publish two or three print magazines each year, each around a central theme. Previous themes include 'The Politics of Sex', 'Climate Change - Feeling the Heat', 'Drugs - Drawing the Line' and 'Mind Matters - Mental Health in the Modern World'.
We have regular meetings throughout the year: workshops, socials and launch events for each issue with a panel of speakers relevant to the theme. Previous speakers have included Caroline Coon (founder of the charity Release), Camilla Born (of E3G) and Nick Dearden (director of Global Justice Now).
Our first event, on Tuesday of week 2 (11h October), will be an open exec meeting followed by a social at the Dirty Duck, where you can meet the exec and your future colleagues.
Our first speaker event will be on the 20th October in S0.19 with Nobel Peace Prize Nominee and leader of the West Papuan Independence Movement, Benny Wenda.
