Colophon

Document Actions
Information about the production work behind this website.

In nineteenth-century high-quality publishing, the "colophon" was a section at the end of a printed book which described the details about the work which had made possible the object resting in the reader's hands. The colophon would name the printers, list the typefaces and their designers, and would provide details about the date and location of printing. It was a means of making visible some of the labor made invisible by the industrialization of printing.

It seems fitting for Bad Subjects to do this work as well.

Bad Subjects is the product of 265 authors and a sixteen-member Production Team.

Bad Subjects is published online by the EServer, a nonprofit cooperative with over 280 volunteers who work to publish more than 34,500 works free of charge to over 1.25 million online readers per month. The EServer hosts 44 websites in the arts and humanities; Bad Subjects is one of these. The EServer is based in the English Department at Iowa State University.

The EServer is powered by the Plone notes about Plone open-source content management engine, which runs atop Zope, on top of Apache, the free, open-source, most popular webserver software application in the notes about Apache world, running on top of the Mac OS X Server open-source UNIX (Darwin/NetBSD) operating system, running on a five-microprocessor PowerPC server.

Bad Subjects #91: Faith













In what do you have faith? Do you have faith in Americans’ ability to elect a new President who won’t bring us to the brink of nuclear war with one misguided late-night tweet? Do you have faith in the local police to respect and protect all citizens? Did Bernie 2016 give you faith in Democratic Socialism, in young voters? Do you have faith in your skills, education, and training to make a career for yourself in a roiling, shifting society? Do you have faith in a God, gods, or your dogs? Do you have faith in your rationality? Do you buy lottery tickets?

We at Bad Subjects invite you to pull back the curtain on your faith, whatever shape it takes, and examine its sociopolitical ramifications.
