The Belarusian Journal -- Arche

Arche is an independent Belarusian inter-disciplinary bimonthly periodical. Established in 1998, Arche is a venue which brings together Belarusian intellectuals to discuss issues affecting Belarusian society, such as: politics, history, language, economics, etc.. It has also published the translated works of non-Belarusian writers, historians, politicians, such as: Vaclav Havel, Taras Kuzio, and Zbigniew Brzezinski. The articles included in Arche have often been in conflict with the views of the authorities in Belarus, especially those covering the rule of Belarusian President Alyaksandr Lukashenka.

Arche is available electronically through the University of Manitoba Libraries, as well as in paper format in the Elizabeth Dafoe Library’s Slavic Collection’s main stacks, under the call number, Slav DK 507.32 A735, -- with the most recent issue displayed on the Slavic Collection’s Current Periodical Shelf.
