Literary Gazette 2017
Welcome to the Literary Gazette! This year’s theme, “Technology,” comes with obvious implications that apply to our understanding of a modern, connected world—but the word and concept of technology apply to a great many things beyond that definition, where we’ve been and how we got here from there. Indeed, that umbrella covers the entire history of innovation and its many boons and setbacks. It’s a loaded concept, and collectively, this volume does not represent any grand unified conclusion about the worth or detriment of that concept. It represents a point in time, one that allows us to compare and contrast, to think about what we take in and leave behind, and, ultimately, to facilitate conversation about how we better ourselves.
