Another week of political, economic and social tension around the world comes with new set of Diversions from the editorial team at the Public Sphere.

As France heads to the polls this Sunday for the first round of its presidential elections, Theresa May decides to supersize Europe’s election supercycle by calling for a snap election and Turkey’s Erdogan consolidates power after his referendum win. Venezuela gets even tenser in the push to throw Maduro out and the U.S. tests North Korea.

Beyond these headlines, it’s as important as ever to stay inspired and move forward. Check out what we’ve been reading this week, from literature’s arctic obsession to the future of democracy after the U.S. 2016 election and an interesting article on ‘interfaith philosophy’. Enjoy!
