Let me mention a few more details about the new site we’re getting ready to launch.
It has a few different components. But the main one is a new group blog with a few more than a dozen individual contributors. The group blog will be a forum both for posts on topics and questions of interest to the individual contributors and also, we hope, for debate and discussion amongst them.
As you might expect, the focus of conversation will be politics and current affairs, but neither narrowly nor exclusively. We’re also hoping for lively exchanges about the arts, literature, religion and the sciences.
We’re still putting together the list of contributors. And we’ll be bringing you more on that in the coming days. But the list of those who’ve already signed on includes Todd Gitlin, Ed Kilgore, Mike Lind and Judith Shulevitz, among others.
