The New Herald is a journal of political and cultural commentary, social thought, and provocative ideas organized around the principle of pluralistic and open discourse. Our intention is to provide a space for an extended, earnest conversation on the things that matter: culture, politics, history, and the meaning of our modest place in the world. These conversations–regardless of disciplinary or subjective origin–all broach the persistent and significant questions of our time: the challenges of living in the modern world, the issues inherent in democracy, and the phenomena of being human.
We are committed to introducing new voices and ideas, and sharing them with anyone willing to engage with the essential questions of our era. By incorporating a variety of viewpoints, we hope to challenge ourselves and our readers to engage in the necessary business of living meaningfully together. The New Herald aims to be a space for epistemic humility and self-evaluation. A place for civil discourse, intelligent dialogue, honest debate, and perpetual learning.
