The New Context is a revival of Contexts Magazine and will run as an online journal for international affairs at The New School.

It is run by GPIA students and is set to launch early November.
The editors of The New Context are calling on YOU to contribute content for the following sections.

Share your visual work with GPIA by submitting photography, film, art, or any other form of media. Please include a short essay on the significance of your work and an open-ended reflection of the visual piece. Please direct media submissions to the attention of Marcela Gara.
Academic pieces, essays, or any blog-style write-up involving analysis or perspective in the following topics: US politics, world, environment, religion, culture, science, education. Think of pieces you would see in an academic journal, but since this is a blog, also feel free to be creative with formats, length (shorter pieces are welcome).


Personal essay pieces & perspective on current issues and events.EVENTS
Reactions to /analysis of / commentary on events you’ve attended either here at the New School or in the community (Columbia/NYU events are welcome). Feel free to be creative. Please direct any event related questions to the attention of Alix Schroder.

The submissions should be focused on what you as GPIAers want to see and what you think your colleagues would be interested in learning about. The submissions should be in the “context” of international affairs.  

If you would like your piece(s) to be included in the launch, please submit by October 31st, 2012. Any submissions thereafter will be posted following the launch.

Please indicate the section (Media, Context, Opinion, Events) in the subject line of your submission. 

We look forward to your contributions.
