Twelve Tomorrows: How Science Fiction uses Today’s Technology to Envision the Future

Since 2011, the MIT Press’s Twelve Tomorrows series of anthologies has brought together the day’s leading science fiction authors and tasked them with exploring the role and potential impact of developing technologies in the near, and not-so-near, future.

How will technology impact the future of our emotional connections with one another? Can an imagined pandemic prepare us for the next real one? What does human flourishment look like in the Anthropocene? The stories of Twelve Tomorrows remind us that we can choose our future and show us how we might build it.

Join a panel of Hugo Award-winning authors as they discuss the value and utility of using science fiction and cutting-edge research to imagine the future and interrogate the present.
