November enriches public discourse by cultivating a rigorous yet intimate study of how culture influences our larger social, political, and economic experiences.


November began as ten longform interviews to be published online from July to November 2020. We observed a crucial lack of critical, generative, and in-depth conversations on process and practice among other themes. The result was Volume 0, which features a range of cultural luminaries, from Adrian Piper, Frank Wilderson III, and Sarah Schulman to Hal Foster.

In 2021, November was dubbed a “cerebral” publishing and programming endeavor by The New York Times, as the magazine's readership expanded significantly and we became a nonprofit. November’s editorial staff is comprised of artists, editors, and writers who offer decades of experience with an equal commitment to process-driven thinking.

The rigor of November’s editorial approach is driven by our focus on intimacy, permanence, and peer-to-peer relationships. In this sense, November is both a map and an archive of our cultural present and possible futures.
