Future Café

Thursday, September 29, 2022, 6:00–7:00pm

Foster 107

University of Chicago undergraduates, please join us for the first Future Café meeting of 2022–23!

Future Café is a student-organized series that provides the opportunity and space for undergraduates to collectively imagine utopian possibilities and long-term futures. What sort of ideas appeal in the present moment? What projects are already underway? What is neo-futurism, or futurology? What is the role of imagination in shaping politics, the environment, and social life? How might radical futures be brought into being?

At the start of each academic year, students meet to generate a list of topics for their meetings. Past topics have included the future of work, of play, of boredom, and of death. Future Café has also produced three issues of Post-X, a zine compilation of creative work and futurology by University of Chicago undergraduate students.

Future Café events are open to all undergraduate students at the University of Chicago. No prior knowledge of the topic of discussion is required, nor is there “homework.”

This event is free and open to all University of Chicago undergraduate students. It will be held in person and registration is required.
