We are currently suspending all subscriptions to prevent further automatic renewals and free up more time for web content and other projects. Please stay tuned for more news about our plans for 2018!
Today is a special day for us at ROAR, marking the second anniversary of our new website and print magazine. I’d like to use the occasion to share some news about our upcoming issue(s) and our plans for 2018.
First of all, some of you may have noticed that Issue #7: System Change — on capitalism and the climate — is slightly delayed. This is mostly because I was on a book deadline in September and began co-teaching my first university course in the UK right after that, while my co-editor Joris Leverink began working on a new book as well, leaving very little time for ROAR on the side.
We’ve been making some good progress, though, and I’m now confident that this will become our most important issue yet. It features contributions by Jason Moore & Raj Patel, Vandana Shiva, Andreas Malm, and a number of inspiring climate justice activists. Joris and I just spent a week in Zagreb with our art director, Bojan Kanižaj, working on the layout, which is once again beautifully illustrated. We expect to release the issue over the next weeks.
You can still pre-order your own hard copy (with free shipping) here.
Issue #8, meanwhile, will be coming out sometime in early 2018.
Please note that, after Issue #8, we’ll be discontinuing the print version of the magazine to free up more time for web content and other projects, including Joris’ book on Turkey and the Kurdish question and my own second book on the general crisis of late capitalism and the coming global disorder.
In January, I will also be moving to London to take up a full-time teaching job, so it unfortunately won’t be possible to continue printing and distributing issues from our base in Amsterdam.
For these reasons, we decided to suspend all active ROAR subscriptions to prevent further automatic renewals. Don’t worry: if you are an active subscriber you’ll still receive all issues you paid for, and we’ll make sure that the digital PDFs remain accessible as well.
At the moment, our intention is to continue publishing more irregular thematic issues online. In the next couple of days we expect to have some more news about our plans for the future, and how we intend to continue building on the incredible support we’ve received from all of you over the past years.
If, in the meantime, you have any further questions about your subscription, don’t hesitate to send us a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
