The goal of this workshop is to explore the use of counterfactuality (sometimes referred to
as counterfactual history, allohistory, or uchronia) as a futuring technique. We aim to do so
by bringing together a diverse group of social scientists, humanities scholars, and designers
to share and evaluate current uses of counterfactuals across academic disciplines, and to
consider collaboratively a path for developing counterfactuality as a cross-disciplinary
futuring method. To provide the workshop with additional thematic coherence, we will
focus on the creation and communication of preferable sustainability futures.
