Welcome back to another year of critical essays from the Avery Review! In issue 41, Tizziana Baldenebro adjudicates the pedagogical agenda of California’s Missions; Alison Brunn floats between the past and present realities of Isle de Jean Charles; Margret Grebowicz surveys the exhaustion of environments in late capitalism through the mediations of mountaineering; and George Kafka reports on three experiments of community-led housing in London.
We’re also excited to be inaugurating a new feature on our website. To celebrate five years of the Avery Review, we’ve introduced a Topics page that offers a series of thematic cross sections through our archive, documenting some of the crucial ideas and concerns that have animated our authors and editors alike.
…for summer reading from CBAC!
