This second day of the conference gathers a path-breaking group of artists, scholars and activists whose words and work conjure new forms of imaginative critique through storytelling. By broadening the contours of a fabulatory practice in everyday life, they elevate our understandings of the unknown in ways that upend conventional modes of recognition and possibility around future making. Rather than position the past as a stable precursor to the present, or view the future as a progressive march to the finish, the speakers in this session materialize stories to challenge teleologies of innovation, reworking who and what are made to matter. Across lectures, screenings and performances they weave feminist speculation into critical rereadings, drawing out what Sareeta Amrute (borrowing from Kathleen Stewart) calls a techno-affect of attunement, those ways of connecting that curtail relations of domination. In enlivening expanded genres of world building, this session helps us learn to notice and future otherwise.
