Daniel Rosenberg Histories of the Future
*Histories of the Future looks at how our lives are constructed around ideas and images about the future that are as full and as flawed as our understandings of the past. It explores links between panic and nostalgia, waiting and utopia, technology and messianism, prophecy and trauma, it brings together critical meditations on the social, cultural, and intellectual forces that create narratives and practices of the future.
