All tomorrow's cultures; anthropological engagements with the future.


All tomorrow's cultures; anthropological engagements with the future.

Collins, Samuel Gerald.

Berghahn Books


140 pages




Collins (anthropology and cultural studies, Towson U.) reviews the future work of anthropology over the past two centuries, and suggests where the discipline's thinking about the future may take it. His interest is in anthropologists projecting into the future, but not much in science fiction writers who draw on anthropology, citing only H. G. Wells and Octavia Butler, but for some reason not Ursula Le Guin.
