9780822334736: Histories of the Future

We live in a world saturated by futures. Our lives are constructed around ideas and images about the future that are as full and as flawed as our understandings of the past. This book is a conceptual toolkit for thinking about the forms and functions that the future takes. Exploring links between panic and nostalgia, waiting and utopia, technology and messianism, prophecy and trauma, it brings together critical meditations on the social, cultural, and intellectual forces that create narratives and practices of the future. The prognosticators, speculators, prophets, and visionaries have their say here, but the emphasis is on small narratives and forgotten conjunctures, on the connections between expectation and experience in everyday life.

In tightly linked studies, the contributors excavate forgotten and emergent futures of art, religion, technology, economics, and politics. They trace hidden histories of science fiction, futurism, and millennialism and break down barriers between far-flung cultural spheres. From the boardrooms of Silicon Valley to the forests of Java and from the literary salons of Tokyo to the roadside cafés of the Nevada desert, the authors stitch together the disparate images and stories of futures past and present. Histories of the Future is further punctuated by three interludes: a thought-provoking game that invites players to fashion future narratives of their own, a metafiction by renowned novelist Jonathan Lethem, and a remarkable graphic research tool: a timeline of timelines.

Contributors. Sasha Archibald, Susan Harding, Jamer Hunt, Pamela Jackson, Susan Lepselter, Jonathan Lethem, Joseph Masco, Christopher Newfield, Elizabeth Pollman, Vicente Rafael, Daniel Rosenberg, Miryam Sas, Kathleen Stewart, Anna Tsing

From the Back Cover:

"An eclectic, provocative mix of ideas and approaches united by their common intelligence and lucidity, the essays in Daniel Rosenberg's and Susan Harding's "Histories of the Future "tease out unexpected adjacencies between a welter of social, political, and cultural scenarios that touch on questions of the "yet-to-come." This is a book that should be read by anyone with an interest in the relationship of the future to the past--and of the present to both."--Jeffrey Kastner, senior editor of "Cabinet "magazine

Descripción Duke University Press. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Histories of the Future, Susan Harding, Daniel Rosenberg, We live in a world saturated by future-consciousness. Our lives are constructed around expectations of the future as full and as flawed as our understandings of the past. This volume is a conceptual tool kit for thinking about the hopes and anxieties embodied in ideas of the future. Exploring links between panic and nostalgia, waiting and utopia, technology and messianism, and prophecy and trauma, it brings together critical meditations on the social, cultural, and intellectual practices that create narratives of the future. Prognosticators, speculators, prophets, and other visionaries have their say, but the volume's emphasis is on smaller narratives, on the connections between expectation and experience in daily life. The contributors trace futures as they are imagined in sites as diverse as Rachel, Nevada, the "ufo capital of the world;" the gambling, savings, and stock market investment strategies of postwar middle-class American families; the private and published writings of science fiction author Philip K. Dick; and early-twentieth-century futurist art movements in Europe and Japan. They examine how cell phones created a new kind of revolutionary anticipation in the Filipino People Power movements, how Christianity and alien visions coalesced to produce an expectation of impending apocalypse within the Heaven's Gate movement, and how information technologies, and particularly hypertext, reorder knowledge and expectations. Histories of the Future is punctuated by three interludes: a game in which readers are encouraged to use icons of companies, persons, products, and places to form future narratives of their own; a short story in which the renowned fiction writer Jonathan Lethem imagines the future as a gigantic traffic jam; and a remarkable graphic research tool: a timeline of timelines. Contributors.
