    Perils of Populism:
    Submissions open

    The world is in the grip of profound political and social change. Leaders are rising who promise to respond to the voice of the people – people who are aggrieved and resentful, feeling the sting of inequality and the uncertainty of a new economic order.

    We are seeking pieces for Griffith Review 57: Perils of Populism. As the populist movement continues to make its presence felt, we’re looking for writers keen to explore with originality and insight the sources and perils of contemporary populism: economic, social, educational, media, political, religious – the human and social dimensions up close and personal.
