Anticipation 24 is a unique, radically interdisciplinary conference for exploring how ideas of the future inform action in the present. With an emphasis on Just Futures, we seek contributions that explore equity and fairness and question who imagines futures and with which impacts. We invite researchers, scholars and practitioners engaging with anticipation and anticipatory practices to come together to deepen their understanding and create productive new connections.
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. This conference will build on prior conferences in Trento, Italy (2015), London, England (2017), Oslo, Norway (2019), and Tempe, Arizona (2022).
Anticipation 24, will emphasize questions of justice and is devoted to opening up the study of anticipation to new voices, new spaces and new approaches.
