Drawing on the understanding that “Pluralism is the view that there is no one correct logic, or alternatively, that there is more than one correct logic”, The Pluralist is a student-run newspaper following in the vein of acts of self-publishing at the Royal College of Art. The Pluralist hopes to act as a platform for experimental practices and works in progress, offering a different context to make all students' voices heard across the college and beyond.
The Pluralist is the new iteration of the Royal College of Art’s Students’ Union-run Newsheet newsletter. Re-launched in 2017 The Pluralist began under the editorial lead of Rachel Yalisove, Anna Schlimm, and Niyoshi Shah. The newspaper has since been continued by Aleks Stanek and designed by Eilis Searson. Since 2019, Lucy Holt and Harriet Welch have co-edited the publication with contributors varying with each edition. In this current form, issues have addressed the dual thematics of ‘self & other’, ‘openings & closings’, and ‘real & fake’, exploring paired concepts which have some tension within them.
Due to the current global situation, ‘real & fake’, released in July, and all forthcoming issues will be available online. We hope to return to print in the near future. If you have a pitch, submission, or simply have questions, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
