The ISAD Panopticon

The ISAD Panopticon is a student-run project, publishing a magazine featuring content created by students of the Jagiellonian University. It aims to inform the readers of knowledge relating to International Security and Development and related fields, such as political studies, philosophy, international studies, and media studies in an easily accessible way. Security as a concept is all-encompassing of human life, and the ISAD Panopticon seeks to push forward this understanding through its breadth of covered topics. The magazine format allows for the combination of the academic approach of research and discourse with the journalistic approach of coverage and audience, with featured content such as academic essays, journalistic coverage of news and events, and other freeform content such as artwork or interactive activities. The team is always on the lookout for prospective content creators and aspiring writers, so feel free to reach out at our e-mail (click here to open email adress) or our Facebook page (click here to open new tab).

The magazine will operate under the title The ISAD Panopticon and the motto See all. Hear all. Know all.  The magazine draws from Jeremy Bentham’s idea of Panopticon; an all-encompassing surveillance by a single entity. Through it, we realize the potential and power of media and journalism as an observer capable of getting as complete and as objective coverage/insight into certain issues as possible. Therefore, we achieve a shift from the original idea of panopticon: from an unequal gaze of guardsman-prisoner to an equalizing gaze for the general audience and layperson.
