CoverWe’re out of beta!

Last night, after the “Abu Dhabi Reads Animal Farm” event that we co-sponsored with the NYUAD Institute, we unveiledĀ Electra Street 01, the inaugural print issue of this journal.

The first issue features articles by:

  • Yasser Alwan and Shamoon Zamir
  • Nathalie Peutz
  • Kevin Riordan and Michael Littig
  • Matthew Silverstein
  • Justin Stearns
  • Kate Stimpson
  • Ankhi Thakurta

It also contains short fiction by Jennifer Acker and Joanne P. D. Bui, and poems by Sachi Leith.

Intended for general readers interested in cutting-edge work in the arts and humanities, the journal features a design created by the NYUAD Design Collective. The issue is illustrated with art and photographs by Shakhbout Al Kaabi, Sarah Bushra, Lan Duong, Caroline Gobena, James Hunt,
Anna Ivanovna Kurkova, Justin Nestor, Kimberly Rodriguez, Rasha Shraim, Liza Tait-Bailey, and Agustina Zegers.

Bonus content is available via the page dedicated to the issue. You can also download a PDF copy of the Introduction to the issue.

Electra Street 01 is printed in the UAE by Professional Advertising and Publicatins, LLC, and is being distributed there and at NYU’s global sites. Later this summer, it will be available in a variety of e-reader and print-on-demand formats. If you’d like to have a copy of the inaugural issue, please send an inquiry to us at
