Vol I: Rising From the Ashes: Inequality, Crisis, and Response
As we emerged from the depths of the COVID-19 pandemic and stared down a burgeoning series of economic, political, environmental, and health crises around the world, our editors wanted a theme that captured both the stark challenges this reality presented, and the opportunities for rebuilding it offered. We hoped that this theme would allow us to couple a realism about the immense obstacles tied to inequality all over the world, with a radical form of optimism about the ways communities have arisen out of crises and used them as opportunities for transformative change. Crisis, in this title, is broadly defined – it is meant to be a term that allows authors to reflect on the many ways philosophical, political, and cultural challenges can manifest in communities big and small, and how solutions can be found in both the intuitive and unintuitive, the expected and unfounded. The submissions we received for this year embraced this openness – producing a variety of works that engage with the idea of crisis in all of its various forms. We are incredibly proud of the diversity of perspectives and approaches this first volume of the Inequality Review presents – and hope it will act as a harbinger of things to come for future editions.
Vol II: Constructing A Better Future: A Blueprint for Overcoming Inequality (unavailable - being updated)
We live in a world divided. Our societies are increasingly polarised by geopolitical conflict, threatened by the climate crisis, ruptured by technological change, and shaped by deep economic disparities – all the while reeling, still, from the lasting effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, communities across the globe – from social movements and political reform efforts to cultural organisations and scientific networks – offer glimmers of more just and equitable futures. At this moment of unpredictability and possibility, this year's edition of the Graduate Inequality Review seeks to help construct a blueprint for the path forward. Future is broadly defined, to allow authors to explore the social, political and philosophical ramifications of the concept.
