Our current issue on Public Space is (finally!) out. Look for it in cafes and restaurants in Gung Guan, Shr Lin, Shr Da, and the usual places. If you can't get your hands on a copy but would like one, please send us an email. We have a few copies of older issues, as well - though stocks are continually dwindling.
Upcoming Issue: Peak Oil
Our upcoming issue is on Peak Oil. If you are interested in writing on this topic, some of the article ideas we have in mind are as follows:
- The Peak Oil Timeline
- Effects of oil scarcity (compare to 1979 oil crisis?)
- What is made with oil?
- A look at the major players: US, China, Iraq, Iran, Saudi, EU, Venezuela, Japan...
- Resource Wars and “The Bomb”
- Alternative energies as solution to peak oil?
If you would like to write on one of these topics, or have any other ideas, OR would like to submit unrelated materials (such as poetry, photographs, artwork, etc.) that we will consider for use where space permits, again, send us an email.
For those of you who are really on the ball (or, come to think of it, for you procrastinators!), further upcoming themes (in no particular order) include the following (and we are also open to the power of suggestion):
- Global Warming
- Nuclear Energy/Weapons
- Taiwan Punk/Taik
- "Taiwan Heaven"
- Animal Rights+Vegetarianism
- What is the Role of the Artist in Modern Society?
- What is Sacred?
- Office Environmentalism
- Taiwan Relations (US/Japan/China...)
- Taiwan's Flora and Fauna
Generally, we can use 1-2 pages of anything (article, short story, poetry, photo, painting, etc), unless prior arrangements are made. We prefer that articles relate either to the specific topic we are discussing or else to environmentalism, consumerism, peace, or art in Taiwan. We will consider articles on other topics, but may only use them as space permits. Sorry - we are unable to offer anything but a few free copies and a warm hug to our contributors. And you might have to come to Taipei for the hug...
