The simple question at the heart of this talk is how to think and act for a post-catastrophic world? Although no one who I would describe as working in service of such a question would explicitly frame it in such an elementary way, this perhaps naïve question binds all theorists and practitioners who seek to reclaim the future from the constraints of our given reality and the foreseeable non-future awaiting us. So how so “non-future”? If, as the poet Wallace Stevens has written, “the future is description without place,” the future is a concept with no given site upon which to be enacted; it has to be constructively imagined.
