The Straddler Pinback Button
reward item
$2
per month
Every dollar counts, and this is doubly true of two dollars. As thanks, you'll receive The Straddler's  7/8" pinback button, which helps you casually evoke Janus and the owl of Minerva while paradoxically inhabiting an age in which both are ostentatiously ignored.
The Straddler tote bag
reward item
$5
per month
The Straddler's handsome canvas tote bag helps you bear the crushing weight of responsibility that comes with living in today's world. (You also get a button, whose efficacy for these purposes is less certain.)
The Straddler Item
$10
per month
The Straddler's Item is a bi-monthly dispatch that examines the topics of the day with humor, gall, and insight. (You also get a button and a tote bag.)

About

Wholly funded by its readership and audiences, The Straddler is an interdisciplinary organization founded in 2007 with the intent of examining and impacting contemporary culture. We pay all of the writers and performers who help us maintain the high quality of our work.

Our magazine, The Straddler, is available online at www.thestraddler.com. Contributors have included Trevor Paglen, Kazys Varnelis, Bonnie Costello, James Kenneth Galbraith, Yang Jianli, Fanny Howe, Lewis Lapham, Heather Cox Richardson, David Ellerman, Micah Zenko, and James Kwak.

We also produce theater, films, and live events. These productions have included a staging of T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land and a film adaptation of Shakespeare's Richard III.

Looking as much to the past as to the present for insights into an age where repetition and cultural diminishment are the norm, The Straddler seeks to sift through illuminated bits of Western and American culture. Pieced together, we believe these fragments offer images of the potential for a more dignified and humane cultural future.

You can support us with monthly contributions of as little as $1 per month.

Patrons who pledge $2 per month or more get a 7/8" pinback button that helps them casually evoke Janus and the owl of Minerva while inhabiting an age in which both are ostentatiously ignored.

Patrons who pledge $5 per month or more get a handsome canvas tote bag that helps them bear the crushing weight of responsibility that comes with living in today's world.

Patrons who pledge $10 per month or more get the tote bag and access to our monthly Item, a bi-monthly dispatch that examines the topics of the day with humor, gall, and insight.
