Description

The circumstances of COVID-19 appear as having an eclipsing immediacy; exponential curves and rapidly unfolding news cycles seem to overshadow the importance of a “far” future beyond the next few months or weeks.

Contrary to this, consideration of the far future has never been more relevant. The pandemic and quarantine have revealed the potential for rapid, planetary-scale re-evaluations of public modes of being, social virtuality, health, technological surveillance, and governance strategies.

In order to contribute to this urgent conversation, 3CT has invited University of Chicago undergraduates to submit essays, artistic meditations, or other experimental projects, to be highlighted in a new digital publication, Post-X. Please join us as we launch this new project in a live Zoom event.

A meeting link will be circulated on our website shortly.
