Welcome to the Brand New TheMantle.com!





Welcome to our freshly redesigned website! We're happy to have you here, and excited for you to read through our pages. For those of you new to The Mantle, you will find essays ranging in topics from xenofeminism to colonialism, from hyper-realistic art to the newest music out of Trinidad and Tobago. It is our hope that you will explore the writing on these pages and find critiques that challenge you, interviews that intrigue you, and essays that keep you coming back for more.


While our look is new, our core is the same. You will still find all our great content in the areas of philosophy, literature, arts & culture, and international affairs. So take a look around.
