Bad Subjects - History

History

The Berkeley-based cultural magazine Bad Subjects was started at UC Berkeley in September 1992 by founding editors Joe Sartelle, Annalee Newitz, and Charlie Bertsch. By 1996, Bad Subjects was both an online and hard copy academic publication.

In 1998, Bad Subjects was identified as of the most celebrated cultural studies magazines on the Internet. Also in this same year, Bad Subjects founded a small educational nonprofit corporation, to promote the progressive use of new media and print publications. The group has co-authored two books, entitled Bad Subjects: Political Education for Everyday Life and Collective Action: A Bad Subjects Anthology.

In 2001, the webzine's popularity had grown to where it was now seen as the West Coast's answer to the Illinois based journal The Baffler.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    the future is simply nothing at all. Nothing has happened to the present by becoming past except that fresh slices of existence have been added to the total history of the world. The past is thus as real as the present.
    Charlie Dunbar Broad (1887–1971)

    The history of the Victorian Age will never be written: we know too much about it.
    Lytton Strachey (1880–1932)

    Racism is an ism to which everyone in the world today is exposed; for or against, we must take sides. And the history of the future will differ according to the decision which we make.
    Ruth Benedict (1887–1948)
