Human beings have traditionally been preoccupied with visions of the future. We may now have more power to shape the future of human beings for better or worse, intentionally or unintentionally. Technology advances so quickly, it leaves little time to consider the long-term. How might novels and films present futures and allow us to accept or reject their projections? This panel invites discussion of individual representative works and/or multiple works for comparison.

This panel will take place at NeMLA's 2016 convention between March 17 and March 20 in Hartford, CT.
