Reading, Looking, Listening, . . . Questioning

The theme of this issue is that of every Zeteo issue: Borders. We are interested in transgressing the borders between the personal, the political, and the intellectual, and in pieces that cross the boundaries between academic fields.

In Zeteo‘s New York home, this year’s spring was delayed by a long, biting winter. Low temperatures forced us to walk through spring, as Joseph Conrad suggested, “with eyes half shut, with dull ears, with dormant thoughts.” But earth is finally emerging from under the blankets of hibernation and so too does Zeteo, with a vibrant and warming Spring Issue. Walter Cummins uses […]

Zeteo has always attempted to capture the loving, passionate interests of its writers, opening a space for those who seek to question, reveal, connect, and, above all, explore.
