Taking an American Institution Global



The Atlantic has a long and storied history in the United States, beginning as an abolitionist magazine in the 19th century, and growing over time into a genuine American landmark. Its founding ideals – that it is of no party or clique, and that it is in search of the American idea – are timeless, but how do they translate outside the country? In recent years, The Atlantic has sought to expand its international coverage, and its readership, but how does it take this experience, rooted in a particular country, abroad, while maintaining its journalistic and literary bent?
