The mercurial Ethan Hoffman ’14 sent in this message via winged sandal:
The Hermes – REINCARNATE! – is back from the ashes.
We’re holding first meeting of the semester on Wednesday January 29th at 8:00pm in the UOC. Stop by to learn more about the Hermes, get involved in editing or production, or even just to say hi.
The Hermes is a student-run magazine dedicated to “alternative,” “subversive,” “creative,” “radical,” and “inflammatory” pieces, whether they be reportage, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, theory, visual art, or something uncategorizable – anything that doesn’t fit into mainstream campus media coverage. WE WANT YOU.
The Hermes now has an activist events calendar in every issue, and we want to know it to reflect what’s going on in Wesleyan’s political/social justice community. So please send us the name, date, time, and a one-sentence description of your end of the year events! They will be printed in the calendar in our issue coming out May 2.
The Hermes is Wesleyan’s magazine of political, critical and creative thought. We’ve been publishing since 1975. As always, we also accept submissions of articles, opinions, art, poetry etc. so please send yours to hermes(at)gmail(dot)com. We meet Thursdays at 9 in our office on the second floor of the UOC, everyone’s welcome to come get involved!
Zak Kirwood ’12 sends in information about Wesleyan’s most totally underrated campus media source:
The oldest continuously published student-run progressive publication in the Northeast needs editors, graphic designers, revolutionaries, and submissions! Hermes was founded in 1975 by a group of student activists as an alternative to the school newspaper, the Argus. These days we try to provide a more political, critical, and analytical outlet for campus opinion.
We publish about seven issues a year, with material ranging from campus life, photo essays, short fiction, and opinion pieces, but we tend to focus on activism and social commentary from a variety of viewpoints.
Hermes is organized in a collective, non-hierarchical, informal manner. We have no editors-in-chief, no restrictions on staff, and no censorship; all decisions are made by the entire staff. Hermes is a forum for ideas. Anyone is welcome to participate.
