Kedistan [English] # Around the Web

Kedistan is a webmagazine with an original and libertarian attitude, treating of Middle Eastern news in general, of Turkey more specifically, of cats, of sub-Mediterranean culture. And, every time, of equal parts of humanity, women and men both. Kedistan -ecranKedistan, is also a teeny-tiny platform that aims for openness and collaborativeness and that relies on a small team : which means that the magazine belongs to no one. Or rather, it belongs to all those who keep it alive: its editorialists, its translators, its correspondents, its photographers, its technicians, sometimes the same functions belonging to the same person, and sometimes it relies on the wider network.
