OUR ENTANGLED FUTURE
Edited by: Karen O’Brien, Ann El Khoury, Nicole Schafenacker, Jordan Rosenfeld
We live our lives through stories. They shape how we see the world, how we relate to it, and not the least, how we engage with it. Now more than ever, we need compelling stories that inspire both individual and collective action.
The nine short stories presented in Our Entangled Future are rooted in the complex reality of the climate crisis. Rather than painting a dystopic future, they present agency-driven characters whose insights will inspire readers to contemplate and realize the potential for quantum social change.
The stories in this collection transcend the dualistic storytelling structure of “man vs. nature” by presenting collectives that span human and nonhuman relationships. These stories are undoubtedly “quantum” in nature: The characters are entangled with each other and their landscapes, true models of compassion and empathy. Taken together, these stories reverberate with the themes of the Anthropocene and will, in turn, inspire new ways of navigating the future.
