Join New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd, "Liberties" Editor Leon Wieseltier, and Managing Editor Celeste Marcus for this enlightening discussion.

In the short time since its launch, Liberties has become essential reading for those engaged in the cultural and political issues and causes of our time. The writers in this quarterly publication offer deep experience from across borders, national identities, political affiliations and artistic achievements. As the introductory essay in the inaugural edition noted, “At this journal we are betting on what used to be called the common reader, who would rather reflect than belong and asks of our intellectual life more than a choice between orthodoxies.”

The spring 2021 issue of Liberties includes: Giles Kepel on the murder of Samuel Paty; Ingrid Rowland on the classics; Vladimir Kara-Murza on surviving Putin’s poisons; Paul Starr on reckoning with national failure from covid; Becca Rothfeld on today’s sanctimony literature; Enrique Krauze explores the meaning of Latin America; William Deresiewicz on why great visual art forces us to think; Benjamin Moser on rediscovering Frans Hals; David Nirenberg on what we can learn from earlier plagues; Agnes Callard’s view of romance without love, love without romance; Mitchell Abidor looks back to “social media” in 1895 to understand a crowd’s “wisdom”; the Tallis Scholars’ Peter Phillips on the secrets of Josquin; David Thomson on movies’ poetic desire; plus poetry from Henri Cole, Chaim Nachman Bialik, and Paul Muldoon. And: Leon Wieseltier (editor) asks, “Where are the Americans?” while Celeste Marcus (managing editor) writes for a pluralistic heart.
