WWN 7 Submissions and Guidelines

How to get your article published in the next edition of the WorldWideNapier magazine

We’re doing things differently for the next edition of World Wide Napier. As the world moves online, everything is becoming more streamlined, and so are we.

Theme: Oblivion

“In his seminal work “Lieu de memoire”, the French Historian Pierre Nora claims that, with the rise of media and technology, we are living in a society that has never been as obsessed about archiving events and yet we feel that a piece of news is quickly swiped over by another piece of news, and therefore quickly forgotten.”

Therefore, this issue theme, Oblivion, stands for “forgotten things and memories”.

An example could be printed photos. If we go search through are parents or grandparents shelves, be ensured to find at least one photo album, filled with pictures of weddings, family and friends. How many of us can say to have carried on with this tradition in the 21st century? Has technology played a role in all this?

Another example could be Notre Dame the Paris. In 2019, the “Fragile Old Lady of Paris” caught everyone’s attention worldwide. Only two years after the tragic fire, the French monument has been almost forgotten and media coverage has significantly been reduced.

We would like you to express your view on the topic of “forgotten things and memories”, by picking one subject associated with oblivion and turn it into an engaging article, written in French, Spanish or German. Go deep down in your analysis and show the world your sense of critical thinking.
