What Does the Future Hold?

It’s a big question. The word ‘future’ itself can have many different connotations.

Six social anthropologists at Durham University sit down for six different conversations about what answers – and what further questions – we might find. Through the fascinating lens of their current research, these thinkers will look at what kind of futures we might imagine for ourselves, and what powers we have to make them happen.

This podcast series has been specially commissioned for Durham Book Festival 2023, produced by New Writing North in partnership with Durham University.

The episodes will be available from Friday 13 October on our website and via your usual listening platforms. Join us at the festival for an accompanying roundtable event on Saturday 14 October.
