"No Anthropologist Aboard the Enterprise": Science Fiction and Anthropological Futures
Collins, Samuel Gerald
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v36 n2 p182-188 Jun 2005
This article examines the work of several anthropologists from the 1960s to the 1980s who used images of the future in their anthropology classrooms in order to stimulate alternative thinking in their students. In response to the apparent inevitability of "monofutures" characterized by globalization, I suggest the necessity for such an approach today. (Contains 2 notes.)
