Berlin Journal

The American Academy's house magazine, The Berlin Journal, features a stimulating range of articles, opinion pieces, fiction, art, and poetry by fellows and distinguished visitors, offering a glimpse of the Academy's vibrant intellectual life and the varied pursuits of its fellows, visitors, trustees, and friends. A newsletter at the heart of each issue includes profiles of current fellows, news from trustees and the Academy community, reports and coverage of recent events, and a list of new alumni publications. Published twice per year, The Berlin Journal is available in print and as PDF download. Past generous underwriters of the magazine include The Halle Foundation, Philip Morris, and Telefonica, whose support has been essential. The four-color, 64-page magazine is designed by the Berlin-based agency EdenSpiekermann.
