We have for you the second issue of The Bates Review, hot off the press. Since the first issue came out last spring we have been a veritable pressure-cooker of excitement about the potential of this magazine. We have been getting top-notch submissions and recruiting some of the raddest talent at this school. We are interested in giving you some ideas to think about; some new things to talk about; beauty to regard. Stories from the US/MX border told in song, stories from the Rwandan genocide told in dance, postmodern photography and writing, cubist self-portraits, heart-wrenching poetry both written and spoken, an art event, and some lights-turned-low basement Jazz. All this coming up.
We also have the honor and privilege of introducing the new talent, Nathan Moreau and Mary Schwalbe; heirs to the editorship. We are super excited for the new perspectives and aesthetic preferences that Nate and Mary bring to the party. Please join us in giving them a virtual round of applause. They will be in charge of the next issue as we uncover (or re-discover) the hidden ways of Europe.
Michela and John
