“Women.”
by Negar Mohtashami Khojasteh

____________________
Meander through the stories of powerful women I have had the privilege to meet; angry and strong, crazy and fierce, the spirit of warriors living within them as they face the struggles of their world. Different as they may be, and from cultures often misunderstood- from the villages of Uganda, to the Mosques in Iran- they stand unwavering at the different injustices they face. Marvel at their humanity, and the unifying factor amongst them all: womanhood.

“Coup de Gueule”
by Fatine Maussang

____________________
Les yeux rivés sur le moindre recoin des paysages, des rues qui m’entourent, curieuse de ce qui m’entoure, engagée et passionnée, je vous livrerai tous mes coups de gueule, à chaud, à froid. J’ai toujours été plus à l’aise à l’écrit qu’à l’oral, et ce besoin de coucher sur le papier tout ce qui m’indigne, me blesse ou m’attriste m’a poussée à rédiger des chroniques engagées. Mon mantra ? Mettre les phares là où tout le monde veut fermer les yeux. Ce « tu » avec lequel je prends la plume, c’est moi, c’est nous, c’est vous.

“The Menu is not the Meal”
by Sophie Morris

____________________
Does language affect the way we feel? The way we communicate? The way we learn? The way we think? The way we identify? How does language affect politics, sociology, religion, sexuality, and our studies?

Just like the food you taste cannot be represented by the words on the menu, reality cannot always be captured by the limits of our language. Or can it? Coming from someone who always has more questions than answers, join me as I explore the role of language in our lives, or in other words, the role of the menu in shaping our meal.

“Dans un Monde sans…”
by Benjamin Wucher

____________________
Cette chronique est destinée aux rêveurs, à ceux qui imaginent un monde meilleur ou pire, qui se demandent comment serait-il s’il n’avait pas … Chaque article sera consacré à l’absence d’une caractéristique qui compose notre monde dans une imaginaire projection de celui-ci et ce que ce manque a comme impact sur le quotidien mais aussi le passé des Hommes. Ouvrez vos esprits car je vous assure, nous ne vivons pas dans le pire ni le meilleur des mondes possibles !

Anna Stonehocker

Anna is one of those people for whom living in Menton is a huge change. Coming from the cold prairies of Canada, she had to adapt not just to the local climate but also to the tininess of Mentonese world. Writing is for her a way to be honest with herself. Her texts try to find clarity, but often end up raising more questions than answers. Anna is a first year, English track student in the dual degree with University of British Columbia.
