    Looking Backwards to the Future: Studying the Future with Counterfactuals
    from 11 Feb 2019 through 15 Feb 2019

 

The goal of this workshop is to explore the use of counterfactuality (sometimes referred to

as counterfactual history, allohistory, or uchronia) as a futuring technique. We aim to do so

by bringing together a diverse group of social scientists, humanities scholars, and designers

to share and evaluate current uses of counterfactuals across academic disciplines, and to

consider collaboratively a path for developing counterfactuality as a cross-disciplinary

futuring method. To provide the workshop with additional thematic coherence, we will

focus on the creation and communication of preferable sustainability futures.
