Winter Issue 2020-2021

When hope was mentioned for the first time in our brainstorm session for this edition of  The Issue, the Star Wars fan in me immediately thought of A New Hope. Even though there is no article in this Issue on Star Wars (perhaps for some other time ), there is a little reference at the […]

Fall Issue 2020

The times we live in are some very crazy and chaotic ones. The pandemic has caused some very chaotic situations. The elections were probably also one of the most chaotic ever. Therefore this edition of the Issue will be a very chaotic one. As American Studies students we know that the political landscape can look […]

Spring Issue 2020

“Art should comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable” This quote makes me wonder how disturbed I actually am, because boy do I love art! Lucky for me, the rest of the Issue’s writers shares this love, and so we have dedicated this Issue to all things that make life more beautiful (or weird). You […]

Winter Issue 2019-2020

“The way to keep your health is to eat what you don’t want, drink what you don’t like, and do what you’d rather not.” Most of us probably don’t agree with Mark Twain on this, but one thing is certain: health is valuable. That is why this Issue will explore the different sides of health […]

Fall Issue 2019

“Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth”. This famous quote from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden has inspired many of his readers. In a time where news can be fake, politicians lie, and journalism seems to lose its credibility, the truth is uncertain. This edition of The Issue wants to emphasize that the […]

Summer Issue 2019

Travel. A lot of you probably have the USA study trip to San Francisco fresh in your memories (for a trip down memory lane, turn to pages 12 and 13). There are also many of you who are preparing for a semester in the U.S. next year. Ask anyone who went on exchange and they […]

Spring Issue, 2019

Power. As George Orwell put it: We know that no one ever seizes it with the intention of relinquishing it. However, after two years of controlling all three branches of government, the Republican Party had to cede its majority in the House of Representatives as a result of the electoral victories of a new generation […]

Winter Issue, 2018

Change. It is the only thing that is constant. While this might sound contradictory, it actually makes sense when you look at the world. Change is happening all around us, just consider that 2018 is almost coming to an end and 2019 is waiting around the corner. Our very own Sander Nederveen experienced quite a […]

Fall Issue 2018

We’re back! While the members of USA Nijmegen are studying hard to prepare for their midterms, citizens in the USA are preparing for an even more important event: the Midterm Elections. Master’s student Tristan Vlerick takes us through the projections of these elections and their implications for the future of the United States.   Another […]

Lustrum Issue 2018

Finally, the moment you’ve all been waiting for: The Lustrum week is (almost) here! Although we’ve been enjoying all the wonderful events that were organized by the Lustrum Committee for months now, the party’s just beginning. This special year doesn’t just deserve its own week, but of course also its very own Issue. So instead […]
