Call for Papers: What do our Futures look like?
Journal of Futures Studies: What do our futures look like?
The Opportunity in Detail
There is increasing interest in involving youth in futures work and many notable organisations are supporting young people to contribute in this space. A number of young people have shown an interest in research and support to write as an introduction to possible academic pursuits of futures studies. The Journal for Futures Studies would like to support the development in this space without duplicating the programs and fellowships that are already available. Submissions are now open to contribute to a special JFS issue focusing on youth views through reflections, essays or academic articles.
This special issue features this generational shift providing a space to the young, emerging futurists (under 35 years old) to share their insights, thoughts, and new perspectives in understanding and working with futures. Futures Studies is a young discipline itself in comparison with the others. The field is evolving and becoming, and we are very keen to hear those stories of growth and changes from the first hands of young practitioners. These personal contemplations could be submitted as essays and extensive research on a variety of topics that demonstrate critical reflection and use of futures methodologies.
