Mrs. Pontellier was not a woman given to confidences, a characteristic hitherto contrary to her nature. Even as a child she had lived her own small life all within herself. At a very early period she had apprehended instinctively the dual life—that outward existence which conforms, the inward life which questions. That summer at Grand… Read more
It would have been a difficult matter for Mr. Pontellier to define to his own satisfaction or any one else’s wherein his wife failed in her duty toward their children. It was something which he felt rather than perceived, and he never voiced the feeling without subsequent regret and ample atonement. If one of the… Read more
A green and yellow parrot, which hung in a cage outside the door, kept repeating over and over: “Allez vous-en! Allez vous-en! Sapristi! That’s all right!” He could speak a little Spanish, and also a language which nobody understood, unless it was the mocking-bird that hung on the other side of the door, whistling his fluty… Read more
In 2019, the Global Center for Advanced Studies —a decentralized alternative to higher education—launched its publication ecosystem in four distinct forms: 1) The GCAS Review; 2) GCAS Magazine; 3) GCAS Commentary; and 4) The GCAS Review Podcast. Through these four mediums, GCAS continues to extend its reach and achieve its mission of bringing unique ideas to interested people at the point of need.
The GCAS Review is a twice-yearly peer-reviewed journal of
interdisciplinary studies and critical cultural engagement. We seek
scholarship that highlights unique ideological features from a wide
range of disciplines, including the humanities, social and political
sciences, religious studies, critical theory, and philosophy to
provide insight into the most vexing questions of the world today.
The GCAS Review, however, is not solely a journal for academics. We also, seek intellectuals with specialized knowledge in subjects that are thematic to our editorial schedule, to include: public intellectuals, sustainability theorists, artists, coders, hackers, designers, artists, and much much more. We are seeking peer reviewers and authors for our Spring and Fall Call for Papers theme, “Contemporary Economics” and “Religion and Society”.
GCAS Magazine is a digital destination where independent journalism and scholarship thrive. Every article is a chance to deliver a unique outlook on a problem, issue, or possibility within or time and to inject the voices of the brightest and most interesting people into the ether of ideas. Whether employing articles, photographs, artwork, or film, our singular goal is to showcase narratives that embrace big ideas and to show what’s possible when we better understand our world.
Pitch Us! We are open to compelling pitches for stories that help our
readers understand interesting our reality just a little better.
We are currently accepting applications for staff writers to join our team.
GCAS hosts a regular number of public lectures online and in-person with some of the most profound minds of our century. Past lecturers include Alain Badiou, Henry Giroux, on Jean-Luc Nancy and Oliver Stone. We also interview academics and other public intellectuals to see where they think their work fits into giving us a better understanding of ourselves, them, and our zeitgeist. It’s in this section that we host these video and audio recordings. We’re not interested in keeping all that amazing knowledge to ourselves and want to ensure you get exposed to what these incredible people are saying.
Sometimes, you just don’t have time to sit down in front of your computer and watch a lecture or an interview. Because we are all on the go, The GCAS Review Podcast exists to give you the ability to listen to lectures and interviews.
If you’re interested in being on the podcast, drop us an email, and we’ll be happy to discuss it with you!
We’re always excited to chat with interesting people who can enlighten our listeners.
