How is the future imagined, planned for and manifested as the site of social and political struggle?
Is the idea of progress towards a better future challenged as a result of financial, environmental, political and health crises?
How do the social sciences, arts and humanities study the future – theoretically and methodologically – and how might they develop modes of analysis to invent different futures?

This conference will explore the contours of ‘the future’ in our current context of multiple financial, ecological and political crises. We are interested in drawing out intersections between the variety of ways that the future is imagined, planned for and performed across the arts, humanities and social sciences.
