Australia's leading agenda-setting journal, Griffith Review, showcases fresh, critical perspectives of what it means to be young today. The Next Big Thinggoes beyond the hype about generational difference and is devoted to exciting new and emerging writers and thinkers, with insightful perspectives on the most pressing issues of the day. The opportunities and challenges presented by globalisation, rapid technological change and the politics of fear mean we live in challenging, unpredictable times. But if you believe the polls, today's youth are disengaged, conservative and materialistic.The Next Big Thingshows that it is not so simple. It looks beyond the stereotypes of youth and unpacks what defines and distinguishes contemporary cultural and political movements, providing a platform for the stories of the times.
