On February 25, 2022, The Calvert Journal ceased publication until further notice. At a time when Russian acts of war are being committed in Ukraine, we cannot in good conscience continue our work covering culture and the arts like business as usual. We are against this war in Ukraine and call for its end.
Our website will remain online, with our archive material still accessible to whoever would like to read it. In the meantime, we will be taking a break to rethink what the mission and purpose of The Calvert Journal could be in a changed Europe.
I am very proud of the work my colleagues and I have done over the past several years to illuminate the life and culture of a generation of young people across Europe, including those in Russia, where many of those we have written about now stand in utter dismay at the actions of their government. I would also like to thank you, our readers, for your interest, loyalty and enthusiasm for the work we do. I hope that in the future we’ll be writing for you again.
This war must end.
Nadia Beard, Editor-in-Chief of The Calvert Journal
