Fall 2023 Theme: Emapthy
The Global Gazette's evergreen theme is (and always will be!) "The Global", but each semester we plan to introduce an issue-specific theme for which we encourage - and prioritize - submissions to engage with. That said, the issue theme is an invitation, not a requirement!
Our Fall 2023 issue theme is Empathy. The Global Gazette's theme for the Fall of 2023 will explore the concept of empathy. The pieces for this submission cycle will contemplate the essence of empathy, pondering what it truly means and how we can cultivate it in an increasingly capitalistic world. They will seek to understand the practical manifestations of empathy, contemplating its appearance and significance in our daily lives. Furthermore, they will examine the instances and areas where the need for empathy arises most urgently. As we navigate the global landscape, we also cast a view on the troubling cases in which the fabric of empathy seems to decay, questioning the factors that contribute to the loss of empathy for others. This way, we confront the unsettling question of how we become desensitized to the suffering and tragedy experienced by our fellow human beings, shedding light on the mechanisms that numb our collective capacity for compassion and understanding. (This prompt is a call to interweave this issue theme with the global subjects that interest you.)
Our evergreen theme is The Global. Broadly speaking, this theme can address elements of globalization, different globalism ideologies, the state of globality, how your local experiences connect to global issues, how your travel/research/art connects to a global perspective, etc. If you feel it’s unclear how your content is related to “the global” in these broad understandings, you will have an opportunity to make a case for why your content belongs in The Global Gazette in the Google Form. If you have questions about either themes, we welcome your emails: firstname.lastname@example.org
