Babel is the magazine for the Faculty of Humanities (FGw) of the University of Amsterdam. Babel is produced for and by FGw students and is distributed in all FGw buildings in the city centre.


Each month Babel features interesting interviews with writers, journalists, actors, playwrights, columnists and opinion makers. We also bring you exciting reports, background stories, reviews and faculty-related articles, all in Dutch.

Because of the lockdown, you can choose to have the latest copy of Babel sent to your home address by post. Please send an email to stating your name and address, and we will send you the latest Babel.
