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. Here, Globalist writers share their commentary on the world’s events today.
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! And be sure to look out for next year’s first issue which will feature articles from our trip to Indonesia.
