RADIX JOURNAL is a periodical on culture, history, politics, spirituality, and society. It appears twice annually.
The name “Radix” has already been established as an imprint of Washington Summit Publishers. While WSP proper focuses on the scientific study of man, Radix publishes fiction, critical theory, and writings on the intersection of genetics, culture, and society. RADIX JOURNAL will make space for an even greater variety of perspectives.
The journal will also distinguish itself through its structure. Though produced at regular intervals, each issue will be dedicated to a central theme or question—and in this way, stand on its own. Each issue will become, we hope, something to which the reader will return. Blogs are gone with the wind; RADIX JOURNAL won’t be.
“Radix” is, of course, Latin, meaning “root” or “stem.” It is the basis of a number of familiar “roots” words, including “radish” and “race.” “Radix” also gives us “radical,” a word which is so often abused. The “extremist”—that is, he who takes things too far—is one thing; the “radical,” in the true sense of the word, is another. He is not excessive, but instead uncovers the heart of the matter; he searches out the source. We hope each issue of RADIX JOURNAL will live up to the name.

THE GREAT ERASURE
The experience of European peoples worldwide can be said to be distinctly post-Apartheid, post-colonial, and post-national. The White man lives in a world his race once dominated and in which Black and Brown are now colonizers, in which European heritage is being taken away piece by piece: cultural heroes, literature, popular icons, identity ultimately, everything. The Great Erasure, the first volume of Radix Journal, explores these themes, with particular emphasis on contemporary South Africa.
