Through narrative we can imagine how the future might be, we can dream of shiny bright possibilities or project into dark dystopian horrors. Through narrative we can transport ourselves forward and consider what the consequences of our actions now might be for our descendants yet to come.
This event will bring together voices from the arts, literature and social sciences to consider the role of narrative in thinking, imagining and potentially bringing into being a range of alternative futures.
Speakers for this event will include Professor Andy Miah (Director, Creative Futures Institute, University of the West of Scotland), Dr Liesl King (Head of English Literature, YSJU), Dr Abi Curtis (Head of Creative Writing, YSJU).
