The New Inquiry Magazine, No. 1: “Precarity”
Subscribe for $2
We’re proud to present The New Inquiry Magazine: A monthly collection of essays and featured content, organized around a common theme and illustrated by Imp Kerr. We hope you will support our project by subscribing for $2/month to receive each New Inquiry Magazine as a beautifully designed, e-reader-compatible PDF every first Monday.
Our debut issue brings together a diversity of voices and perspectives on the issue of precarity. The contents include a dialogue between Hannah Hart of My Drunk Kitchen and Frank Warren of PostSecret discussing the unprecedented experience and inherent instability of sudden, unlooked-for interent fame; essays on the plight of temps, the exploitation of interns and the tenuous use of so-called ‘erotic capital’ in the workplace; criticism about the precarious-economy underpinnings for shows like Breaking Bad and Dexter and an advice column for living in the end times with Michael Seidenberg.
The New Inquiry is one of the few online magazines committed to paying all of our writers for their contributions. Your subscription (at only $2!) makes this possible. Thank you for your readership and support. We hope you enjoy!
