an Are We Europe magazine
 

Note from the editors

 

 
 

This issue of AWE Magazine considers how Europe and the United States remain culturally close, despite recent political divisions.

We dive into the social, historical and cultural forces that have shaped the past, present and future of transatlanticism — from the quick crumbling of Hollywood’s monopoly on cultural output as the result of an increasingly Europeanized Netflix, to a historical comparison of the approach towards freedom of speech on both continents, to an analysis of the bi-coastal intermingling of hip-hop culture; these feature articles, reflections, and essays shed light on the ways that Europe and the United States remain incredibly entwined—even if those threads are beginning to fray.

This magazine is produced by the Are We Europe Foundation.
