Once Upon A Planet: Change the Narrative, Change the Future

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How can we as teachers guide our students imagining their own “positive social futures” through an exploration of futurism? The concept of Latinfuturism has grown out of and built upon the legacy of Afrofuturism in popular and literary cultures. We will explore how bringing futurism from different influences into the classroom allows us to imagine future possibilities for ourselves, our communities, and our earth. The core text for this session, The Last Cuentista, reframes and reappropriates the dominant narrative and places female protagonists from diverse backgrounds at the center of their stories. The event will culminate in an exhibition of multimodal work, modeling how we might create spaces for multiple ways of communicating and understanding.
