DEconstruction started as a basement project out of the English department. Two seniors, Dan Gray and Dan Halprin, started the student-run magazine in 2002 to create a forum for student writing that fell outside of journalism or creative writing. Traditionally, DEconstruction focused on an editorial style of writing to discuss everything from politics to pop culture. Our scope has increased to cover humor articles, point/counterpoint arguments, reviews of music, books, movies, and concerts, and an ever expanding collection of student opinions.
Now the magazine has grown up into a fully funded and unique Resident Student Organization (RSO) here at the University of Delaware. With our capable staff of writers, editors, designers, photographers, and contributors, we write, design, and publish two issues every semester; our work also includes a growing publicity campaign and opportunities for students from all backgrounds to contribute to a young and quirky publication. Though we consistently try new forms of expression, the heart of DEconstruction remains the voices and images of our talented contributors.
