2019 — A Year in Review at Inverse Journal
February 13, 2020
 Inverse Journal just completed a year of exploration this month after its already troubled launch on February 1, 2019. As such, we are proud to present (in a scrollable timeline) the writings, ideas and work by our many contributors from Kashmir and across the globe who shaped our 2019 in this small but persistent community of readers, writers, artists, poets, filmmakers, scholars, journalists and creatives from multiple fields. 2019 has been the year when—struggling (while still struggling)—the journal took off from South Kashmir and into uncharted territory—risking the attempt to connect diverse peoples from different backgrounds, all sharing in common the features of contemporary culture that make us one: our verses, our stories, our songs, our films, our incisive critical thinking, our contemporary ideas, our research, our scholarship and above all, our voices.

Inverse Journal just completed a year of exploration this month after its already troubled launch on February 1, 2019. As such, we are proud to present (in the scrollable timeline below) the writings, ideas and work by our many contributors from Kashmir and across the globe who shaped our 2019 in this small but persistent community of readers, writers, artists, poets, filmmakers, scholars, journalists and creatives from multiple fields. 2019 has been the year when—struggling (while still struggling)—the journal took off from South Kashmir and into uncharted territory—risking the attempt to connect diverse peoples from different backgrounds, all sharing in common the features of contemporary culture that make us one: our verses, our stories, our songs, our films, our incisive critical thinking, our contemporary ideas, our research, our scholarship and above all, our voices.

Below is a timeline that charts this journey that began on February 1, 2019 and that has persisted since, against all the odds. We are grateful to the global academic community for sharing their work to be read more widely, beyond the confines of academic publishing, via the Creative Commons medium. We appreciate equally our international contributors and we thank prospective contributors for their patience and understanding, given the current situation that has made it difficult to keep this platform dedicated entirely and exclusively to contemporary culture, literature, art, writing, film and scholarship.

Feel free to scroll down to see each and every piece we published in one year since this initiative began. Each item opens in a new tab (best viewed on desktops/laptops).
