Volume 96, Number 3
This far into a century of upheavals, what does it mean to practice citizenship? How have our expectations—of our neighbors, of our institutions, of ourselves—evolved to respond to the influences of the age we live in? Can the ideals of citizenship transcend national interests? The Fall issue on citizenship in our century is neither prescriptive nor comprehensive, but exploratory, holding up the concept of citizenship to see the truths refracted through it. Through reporting, fiction, poetry, photography, and even fable, we ask questions that are vital to understanding the ways in which citizenship reaches through daily lived experience.

This issue, the second of our summer-fiction biennial collection, landing in a year of surreal global emergency and sustained anxiety, celebrates the power of fiction to fortify our human connections from afar, and to expand our sense of self. It also features a vital selection of poetry, essays, criticism, and comics, as well as reporting on how a small but mighty magazine works to protect India’s threatened free press.
