Articulations of more just, progressive, even revolutionary futures long relied on narratives of progress that have been profoundly challenged within German studies, queer studies, feminist studies, and ethnic studies. Just Futures examines what possibilities are articulated in literature, film, art, and activism for transformations of the present for more just futures in the face of re-imaginings of the human, of the relationships that criss-cross the globe, and of complex temporalities.
We, as members of the transnational “Just Futures” transnational collective, collaborate in multiple constellations in research projects; feminist and anti-racist activisms; administrative interventions; open-access forums; and workshops.
In this first series, Just Collaborations. Time, Urgency, and Collaboration in the Corporate University, we imagine collaboration as feminist critical practice in the face of the fraught temporalities of feminist knowledge production. We collaboratively seek to challenge the “clock” of assessment and the heteronormative and ableist understandings of time and productivity.
