Taylor 10 Week: Speculative Fiction Open Class Session
What do imaginary worlds have to teach us about the future we want? From fantasy and horror to science fiction, Afrofuturism, cultural commentary, alternative histories and dystopian scenarios, the genre(s) of speculative fiction depict worlds that don’t exist – yet! Through intergalactic encounters, time travel, magic, advanced technologies and more, speculative fiction offers powerful critiques of our current social and environmental systems as well as alternative visions of many possible, and more inclusive worlds. These alternatives allow us to explore and critically analyze what more just, sustainable, liberating and equitable realities might look like, and how we might imagine them into being through processes of social innovation.
Join us as we engage with a panel of local speculative fiction authors Brittany Williams, Danny Cherry Jr. and Daniel Jose Older
