About

A collaborative effort to deepen our knowledge of current crises and future possibilities, Possible Futures is produced by the Social Science Research Council, in conjunction with an SSRC book series published by NYU Press. Although this digital forum is currently inactive, all previously published content remains available. New volumes in the book series are forthcoming.

Our inaugural digital forum on the Occupy movement (which ran from November 2011 to July 2012) was edited and produced by Daniel Aldana-Cohen, Joseph Blankholm, John D. Boy, Letitia M. Campbell, Zachary Menchini, Alyson Metzger, Jessica Polebaum, Lisa Stampnitzky, Jonathan VanAntwerpen, and Wei Zhu.

Initially incubated by Possible Futures, African Futures explores protest movements and resistance to authoritarian rule across the African continent, with particular attention to the oft-neglected democratic currents south of the Sahara. Follow African Futures in its new home.
