Thematic Syllabi

We offer you a choice of five bespoke syllabi per week

  • The Cosmopolitan (on global affairs)
  • The Activist (on social justice)
  • The Intellectual (on arts & ideas)
  • The Progressive (on the political economy of global capitalism)
  • The Machinist (on technology)

Each such syllabus includes 10-15 links to pieces – academic articles, books, videos, podcasts, reports and dissertations, journalism – that are as intellectually stimulating as they are typically overlooked. We do our best to include a short excerpt or a summary to give you some context about the subject matter. Recent editions below.
