PLANTING A FLAG FOR SOCIALISM: AN INTERVIEW WITH BHASKAR SUNKARA JEFFREY J. WILLIAMS In just a few years, Jacobin magazine has gone from a DIY published from a student dorm room to a major voice on the left, speaking especially to a rising generation, with more than 30,000 print subscribers and 1,000,000 online views per month. It was founded by Bhaskar Sunkara in 2010 while he was an undergraduate at George Washington University (BA History, 2011), and he aimed to distinguish it from an earlier stratum of leftist magazines, such as Dissent, New Left Review, and New Politics, making ready use of bold headlines (such as “Burn the Constitution” in an early issue), a snappy style, and high-design, brightly-colored graphics. In his own writing as well as his editing, Sunkara eschews academicism and traditional party-line quarrels and brings an uncommon sense of humor and straightforward advocacy of socialism to current political discussion. Alongside his work on Jacobin, Bhaskar Sunkara has published widely in venues such as Dissent, The Guardian, In These Times, The Nation, and elsewhere, and he frequently tweets @sunraysunray. He composed a kind of manifesto, “Letter to The Nation From a Young Radical” (Nation [22 Mar. 2013]),
