The original pioneers of Silicon Valley dreamed of a better world, but digital disruption has become a threatening catchphrase in recent years. Many of the technologies now at our fingertips are deliberately disruptive, changing industries, economies, politics and institutions, and many facets of our lives from work and romance to art and travel.

These new tools allow us to know more and find out more. We are better connected and our information ecosystem is richer, but new opportunities for manipulation and abuse are also emerging. We're starting to see the enormity of changes and effects that are already underway, and their ethical, moral and social consequences are huge.

Edited by Ashley Hay, Griffith Review 64- The New Disruptors takes a wide-ranging look at some of the upheavals and interruptions that have come with our increasingly technological world. It features contributions from writers including Julianne Schultz, Mark Pesci, Yassmin Abdel-Magied, Mark Davis, Eileen Ormsby, Ian Townsend, Christopher Warren, Phillipa McGuinness, Jacqui Park and Scott Ludlam.

Review quote

`Griffith Review is the leading Australian literary forum for current affairs, culture and ideas.' * New York Review of Books * `For intelligent, well-written quarterly commentary...Griffith Review remains the gold standard.' * Honest History * 'Over the years, it is the emphasis on reportage that has made Griffith Review so consistently interesting and worth reading. Its regular dispatches from people working in the community-whether teachers, doctors, social workers or whoever-have given it the kind of lived-in vitality that few other publications can offer.' * Saturday Paper *
