In order to continue the discussion around the topics of MAS Context beyond the date of their publication, we have created the “In Context” section. This section features guest curators who browse the archives of MAS Context, uncovering new relationships between articles and establishing new topics such as “Emptiness,” “History,” “Social,” and “Location.” As Mimi Zeiger points out in her piece, “What’s made clear when we recontextualize the accumulated material of ten issues of MAS Context is not only the publication’s commitment to delving into topics of politics and place, but the ongoing need for discourse around contextual crises and their consequences.”
