This panel explores and theorizes storytelling strategies used in Black (African and Afro), Indigenous, and Multi-Ethnic Futurist art and social movements, including literature, poetry, film, music, and visual and digital arts. These alternate Futurisms shift the impetus of the creative energy from discarding the past to engaging complex senses of temporality and intertextuality that often center memory, history, folklore, urban legends, and identity.

In the academic world, there is a constant exploration of new forms, genres, philosophies, and directions—reworking established concepts and creating new ones. While storytelling initially existed in verbal speech and gestures, modern mediums such as novels, comics, films, and video games have expanded the narrative landscape. Focusing on novelistic fiction, this panel explores their evolution, and more particularly, the proliferation of genres within them.

While traditional novels consist of a single story, short story collections, and anthologies diverge from this format, offering a unifying theme and a unique, flexible format that allows ideas and themes to be conveyed from different angles without the need for a cohesive plot.
