ONLINE ISSUE

Our July online issue includes interviews with Marxist social theorist David Harvey – speaking on social justice and the city across the world, from Occupy Wall Street to Chongqing in China – and artist and filmmaker Ben Rivers, director of Two Years at Sea, on the art of filmmaking. We’ve also got an essay on the evolution of hashtags as cultural-political forms by Huw Lemmey, a memoir on womanhood, sex and feminism by Saskia Vogel and a piece on the rise of Arab theatre by Tanjil Rashid. Also featured in this online issue is the winning short story from our Ideas Tap/White Review short story competition, ‘The Pits’ by FMJ Botham; an extract from Simon Okotie’s novel What Happened to Harold Absalon?, forthcoming from Salt Publishing later this year; and new poems by John Clegg and Abigail Nelson.
