Panel Discussion | October 31 | 4:30-6 p.m. | Wheeler Hall, 315 (Maude Fife)
In The Handmaid's Tale (1985), Margaret Atwood imagined the future as an authoritarian, environmental, and reproductive dystopia. To what extent have we heeded her cautionary tale? How well did her dystopian imaginings predict our present moment? And what dangers and promises does our own future hold? This panel approaches the question of the future, especially its dystopian and utopian possibilities, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. Our panelists will address the ways that we currently imagine the future, as well as the challenges, both tractable and intractable, that we will face as we move forward into the twenty-first century
