Founded in 1985 amidst the Reagan presidency and the ascendance of right-wing campus media like The Harvard Salient, Perspective is Harvard’s liberal/leftist monthly. We cover campus issues such as labor conflicts and the Allston project, national issues such as the Occupy movement and electoral politics, and international topics such as climate change and women’s rights around the globe. And our “back page” investigates art and culture, and reviews books and films.We take strong stands before others will; for instance, we called on Harvard to end its unethical investments in HEI Hotels & Resorts seven months before the Crimson did so, and we are the only explicitly anti-final-club publication on campus. We publish six times a year, starting in September and ending in April. If you would like a taste of our brand of journalism, read some of our past features, editorials, and back pages. If you want to learn about our current leadership, visit our masthead. If you would like to join us, visit our comp page (fret not, it is quite painless).
