Ellie McDonald
Co-Editor in Chief

Hi, I’m Ellie! I’m a MAIS-2, and I’m delighted to be joining the board as co-Editor-In-Chief. As co-Editor-in-Chief, I handle the magazine’s external relations and help facilitate the rest of the magazine. The magazine helps build relationships with our international community in Vienna and keeps us connected with alumni, and I’m so excited to be a part of the journey.

Andrea Gutschi
Co-Editor in Chief

One of the two Editors-in Chief, I am responsible for producing a magazine that discusses issues of public concern but also discovers hidden stories. I am excited to oversee a team of talented students, and professionalizing their writing and editing skills is of utmost importance to me.

Maximilian Müller
Managing Editor

I have a BA in Transcultural Communication. As a managing editor, I like to encourage writers and editors to tell engaging and well-thought-out stories. In my free time, I love to indulge in Mediterranean food and drinks while dreaming of my next getaway. 

Ireland Maechtle
Creative Director

I'm Ireland! I have past experience managing social media platforms and creating content for boutique co-working spaces during my bachelors studies. I am excited to use my skills to create a unique aesthetic for Polemics. Working with writers to bring a distinctive vision to each of their articles is something that I look forward to doing during the 2021/22 academic year. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any creative contributions you would like to make to the magazine!
