The Journal is distributed annually to universities, libraries and private subscribers in the UK, the US, Belarus and other countries throughout the world.
The Journal publishes articles on Belarusian literature, linguistics, foreign relations, civil society, history and art, as well as book reviews.

On the 23rd of November 1906 the first number of the Belarusian weekly journal Naša Niva (Our Cornfield) was published in Vilna. If one excepts its short-lived predecessor Naša Dola (Our Fate) which ran to only six issues, it was the first lawful Belarusian paper to be published in the Russian empire. During the subsequent nine years of its existence it became a focal point of the Belarusian national renaissance movement.
The article examines contemporary memory politics in Belarus as exhibited by new monuments to Holocaust victims, the genocide of the Roma people, and the mass killings of representatives of the Polish minority during World War II. It analyses various instances of the exploitation of the mythology of World War II for daily political purposes.
