What is the place of literature in light of the current trajectory of globalized industrial “civilization”? Can writers move beyond traditional notions of the future and the oppressive systems of power that have formed them? Do literary mediums have the capacity to depict futures that may very well be unrecognizable to us? Is there a place for radical optimism within what can only be called an abysmal forecast?

What forms will an anti-futurist futurism take?
