UC Speculative Futures Collective Presents
A Symposium on Speculative Futures and Education
Contemporary popular culture abounds with dystopian visions of disastrous futures, a ruined planet, racial conflict, and polarizing global inequalities. But in order to build a better world, we first have to imagine it. Over the next year, the UC Speculative Futures Collective (UCSD, UCR, UCI, UCSC) will be holding events which will bring together scholars and others in the emergent field of Speculative Futures to envision more sustainable worlds and futures. On December 4, 2019, UCR will be hosting a symposium on Speculative Futures and Education, which will consider how best to shape the future of our educational institutions.
