About

Maintained under the direction of Patrick Jagoda and Thenmozhi Soundararajan, this site collects the blog entries, collaborative exercises, and final essay abstracts of students enrolled in the Imagining Futures: Speculative Design and Social Justice course at the University of Chicago. This experimental course seeks to disrupt dominant narratives about “the future”: a monolithic concept that often comes from technologists and policymakers. Instead, we explore what alternative futures might look like when imagined by and with marginalized communities.
