Imagining Alternative Ways Forward in the Anthropocene

Funded by the Henry Luce Foundation


We aim to design and implement a new model of generative, public-facing, multidisciplinary engagement at the nexus of religion, technology, and justice in the Anthropocene.

Occupying the margins and borderlands of the academic religious studies, drawing insights and practices from emergent design, poetry, counterfactual histories, and speculative fiction, our shared task is to imagine new possibilities on the horizon of climate collapse. 

How can religious studies help us imagine and live into a finite but just and thriving future?
