About Criticalfuturestudies

The Critical Future Studies (CFS) network brings together an interdiscplinary group of scholars with a shared interest the future and, in particular, how potential futures are imagined, represented or discussed.
CFS also values and promotes vigorous, imaginative and inclusive debate about the future. We seek to explore both the possibilities of and obstacles to a futural public sphere capable of challenging fatalism and an all-too prevalent cynicism about our capacity to imagine alternative futures in the face of contemporary crisis and precarity. CFS embraces diverse perspectives and, taken as a whole, does not promote any one particular vision of the future. It is best understood as a programme of engaged and open-ended social critique underpinned by rigorous research and debate.
