Book of Abstracts

The overarching aim of the conference and of the interdisciplinary field of Anticipation Studies is to create new understandings of how individuals, groups, institutions, systems and cultures use ideas of the future to act in the present. Anticipation 2024 emphasizes questions of justice. Living with intractable and ineradicable uncertainty leads humans to read the tea leaves, consult the oracle, and tell imaginative stories. Increasingly, we tend to reach for forecasting, statistical analysis and data-driven scenarios, oftentimes narrowing the production of particular types of futures. The Anticipation Conference in 2024 is devoted to opening up the study of anticipation to new voices, new spaces and new approaches.


The Book of Abstracts collects all of the abstracts submitted for the virtual and in-person conferences.
